    Professional Ratings: 88 Wine Enthusiast

    Region: Beaujolais, France

    Varietal: Gamay

    Style: Light & Fruity

    Item no. 106236

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Medium purple and ruby color. The nose speaks off blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry and other small red fruits. The mouth has sweet tannins and is rich of floral flavors as iris and violet. There is a good balance between a lovely freshness of fruit and velvety of tannins.

    Food Pairing: When young accompany with eggs in red wine sauce. In a year or two it will be a perfect match for tender poultry.

    Critical Acclaim:

    With nearly 200 acres of vines, this is one of the largest Beaujolais estates. This Brouilly is ripe, raspberry-flavored, with fine sweet fruits and a tight core of tannin. The essential acidity is well balanced.

    This was indeed a light wine. I found it a little acid and lacking in body and did not find the complexity of flavor that other reviewers have noted. Not a wine that stands up to a beefsteak.
