Critic Notes

The 2015 Brouilly Cuvee Vieilles Vignes underwent the same vinification and elevage as the Beaujolais Villages Vieilles Vignes. It offers candied black cherries and orange sorbet scents on the nose, bridled with an almost vitamin-like purity. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, feminine, pastille-like dark cherry fruit. The winemaking is quite expressive here: a very transparent and carefree Brouilly that should drink well for 5-6 years. (This will be bottled with around 10 mg/L of SO2.)
