At the summit of Mont Brouilly – the emblem of the appellation – the Côte de Brouilly vines cover a small area across four communes: Saint-Lager, Odenas, Quincié-en-Beaujolais and Cercié. The vineyards for this wine are situated in Quincié-en-Beaujolais.
The wine has an intense garnet colour in the glass. Like the passionate winemakers it is spirited and expressive. The aromas are evocative of black pepper and small, brambly fruit. There are generous but delicate tannins, backed up with mineral undertones.
Pair it with chicken and morel mushrooms.
Louis Père et Fils
After 160 years, Louis Père & Fils continues to blend innovation and tradition to produce extraordinary wines from three of the world’s most illustrious terroirs.
The house’s eponymous founder, Evgueni Louis Max, hailed from Georgia, which many believe is the birthplace of winemaking. He inherited his passion from his father, a wine merchant who had been a soldier in Tsar Alexander I’s army.
