    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brouilly, southernmost of the ten Cru Beaujolais, unfailingly displays the highest degree of exuberance in fruit --- an intriguing parallel between geography and character! It is also the largest Cru in terms of volume, as well as the most extensive in surface area. Its vines form a large wreath around the base of the impressive Mount Brouilly, stretching out over the six villages of Odenas, Quincié, Cercié, Saint-Lager, Charentay and Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne. Its name is thought to hail back to a particular Brulius, lieutenant in the Imperial Roman Legion. It is tempting to picture this officer placed under the command of Caesar as having the same solid, jovial personality as the most flavorful of the Cru Beaujolais. The wines of Brouilly, known and esteemed around the globe, are true ambassadors of quality French red wines, regardless of the vineyard area.

    Deep, radiant ruby color, so typical of classic Brouilly. Intensely perfumed, offering a whirl of richly concentrated, jam-like fruits, such as damson plum, strawberry, peach and red currant. The texture is opulent and velvety. Brouilly is at its best while in the fullness of youth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby hue with youthful purple glints. Lovely, developed bouquet of strawberry, cherry and violets. Strawberry dominates the palate of this straightforward, pleasant wine. Lightweight and lively with balanced fruit and acidity. Lingering, fruity finish.
