  • Beaujolais Villages Rosé

    Surface: 54 hectares

    Production in 2014: 2 405 hectolitres / approx. 320 600 bottles

    Soils: The land here is very steep, sometimes up to a 50% incline. The vines which cling to these slopes face east south east on granite and sandy soils with some volcanic sedimentary rock.

    Rosés
    :
    Like all Beaujolais wines, the rosés are made
    from Gamay. Limpid and brilliant in colour,
    they are expressive and full of fruit characters.
    Intense, fruity and aromatic, they are round fresh
    and silky.

    Characteristics: These ruggedly steep vineyards, facing east south east at between 200 and 500 metres altitude, surround the 10 Crus of the northern area. There are as many terroirs as there are villages…. Falling between the Beaujolais and the Crus, this range can be appreciated young, or after several years bottle ageing.

    Reds
    : The ‘Villages’ red wines exist in a great diversity of fruity wines with more complexity and structure than the simple Beaujolais. They are harmonious, focussed and well-structured with expressive aromas of red fruits. They can be appreciated whilst young but also possess good ageing
    potential.

  • Brouilly

    Surface: 1 227 hectares

    Production in 2018: 66 097 hectolitres / approx. 8 500 000 bottles

    Soils: Probably the most complex of all the Crus: half composed of steep slopes of pink granite and half a mixture of clayey scree, “blue stone”, ancient alluvial pebbles and small limestone hillocks.

    Attributes: Absolute finesse

    Aspect: Deep ruby red

    Nose: Aromas of red fruit, plum and mineral notes

    Palate: Red fruit with polished tannins

    Characteristics: This, the southernmost Cru is also the longest, stretching out from the foot of Mont Brouilly and its aptly named chapel, Notre Dame aux Raisins (Our Lady of the Grapes). Full of fruit (plum, small red berries), with some mineral notes, it is perfectly representative of Gamay, and is best
    appreciated in its youth.
