Tasting Notes : The nose is Intense with peony aromas, violet aromas, black fruit aromas, red fruit aromas.Medium bodied and brimming with bright red berry notes, this is a forward and easy drinking wine that retains plenty of character and complexity!
91pts Wine Advocate : Offering up a sweet bouquet of cherries, plums, baking chocolate, rose petals and pipe tobacco, the 2018 Côte de Brouilly Les Feuillées is medium to full-bodied, rich and gourmand, with an enveloping core of fruit underpinned by a muscular chassis of powdery tannin.
The Domain : My vineyards are located on the Combiaty hillside, facing the East and the South-east, where I produce my « Vieilles Vignes » and « Corentin » cuvées. I have recently started growing a parcel located on the famous Mont Brouilly, also situated in Odenas, where I produce my « Les Feuillées » cuvée, in the Côte de Brouilly appellation.
This Côte de Brouilly is located on Mont Brouilly, dominating the village of Odenas. The wine is made from very old vines planted in 1916 on just over one hectare. The soil consists of “porphyritic” and “diorite” rocks with blue volcanic stone. The grape varieties planted are also 100% Gamay. This vineyard cannot be worked mechanically as the terrain is steep and very stony.
