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.

Gamay

Gamay is a thin, delicate purple-black skinned grape which is cylindrical and compact, surrounded by flat, fairly even-edged leaves.

Although granite soils seem to be its soil of choice, the variety is good at adapting. Half of the 30,000 hectares of Gamay planted worldwide are in the Beaujolais region of France, where it covers 98% of the areas that produce Beaujolais wine.

Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.

Cultivation of the vines, control of yields, manual harvesting, and sorting of the grapes at full maturity. Everything is done to extract the delicacy and subtlety of Chardonnay, the finesse and elegance of Pinot Noir. This authentic know-how is the fruit of a unique experience matured over six Generations.

Nice, smooth red wine. Quite light, as you would expect from Beaujolais.
