Brouilly (pronounced broo-we-yee) may not trip off the tongue as easily as Saint Amour or Morgon but it is a delightfully silky, bright fruit Beaujolais Cru in the classic style. Full of ripe red berries and mineral nuances from pink granite soils.
"Jolly Beaujolais – I loved this! Crammed with ripe strawberry. Ideal with Easter duck. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Fabulous, fruit filled Beaujolais with velvety tannins to allow ageing, but it is a winner right now. A charming red with duck or ham and spot on in summer. It’s from the highly esteemed Bel Air cooperative still going strong 90 years after their fathers and grandfathers joined together in 1929 to better withstand the worldwide economic downturn. Brouilly is the most southerly of the Beaujolais Crus and produces a firmer style that can age. What makes these crus special? James Lawther MW explains: “The grape may be Gamay but the crus find some resonance with the wines of their Burgundian neighbours to the north.” Indeed, with age they take on lovely complexity. This Brouilly is always delicious but especially so in this tiny vintage.
