Côte de Brouilly 'La Chapelle' 2019
A beautifully textured Beaujolais from old vines of Gamay. Reminding of stewed red fruits and homemade jams with soft leafy notes and a slight earthiness to it. Pierre makes exceptional Beaujolais wines always expressive of his terroir but turning away from the rather rushed from Beaujolais Nouveau, he instead likes to give his wines more time to develop their character and nuance.
This wine is from his top site in Brouilly, showcasing how Beaujolais does not always have to be a light juicy red but can also be layered, complex and richer.
