2018 Brouilly Les Pierreux
Brouilly is the second largest of the Beaujolais Crus - characterized by an array of soil types, most natably the blue slates. The vines for Cote Etoilee are an average of 30 years old, on slopes of clay, limestone, granite and blue schists in the Les Pierreux climat.
Grapes are handpicked followed by a 14 day whole cluster semi- carbonic maceration in concrete and steel tanks.
The wine has a striking floral side on the nose, followed by deeper, ripe fruit aromas including raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant. Fine and fleshy with beautiful pure and straight structure, built on soft and round tannins. The finish is long and fresh.
