Description

From the producer: This is the only winegrowing sector that has not been given the name of a village. The most prestigious appellation of the Beaujolais region, it stretches across 2 villages: Romanèche-Thorins and Chénas. The eponymous windmill has existed for 450 years. The activity of milling grain ended in 1850. The windmill is now listed as an Historical Monument. Soils here are complex, with half of the area comprised of hillsides of very steep, pink-coloured granite rock and the other half divided between clayey scree called “blue stones”, ancient and often stony alluvium and small limestone hills. Brouilly wines possess minerality and delicious flavours. Bright violet. High-pitched, mineral-accented red and dark berry qualities on the nose, along with suggestions of candied violet and iron. Taut and linear on entry, offering sappy cherry and black raspberry flavors that open slowly with aeration. Shows excellent focus and spicy lift on the impressively long finish, which features youthfully chewy tannins and a lingering floral nuance
