Château de Pierreux Brouilly Réserve de Chateau 2016

Brouilly, Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceNear the base of Bojo's volcanic Mont Brouilly, this Château has 93 hectares of prime vineyards rooted in sustainably farmed decomposed pink granites and schist. This gamay comes from 45 year old vines and was traditionally Burgundian, destemmed and vinified in concrete for 3 weeks before heading to 50hl oak barrels for 7 months. Wild raspberry, cherry is infiltrated and lifted with southern France's bouquet of dried herbs, and granitic salts. This lighter, charming red is wrapped with lightly sticky tannins, and finishes with a lick of alluring blue florals. Drinking perfectly now. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 13 April 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.99 BCLS QC 21.15 SAQ Producer: MommessinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
