Domaine les Roches Bleues Côte de Brouilly Soleil de Brulhie 2016

Côte de Brouilly, Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceLes Roches Bleues is a family estate now in its 3rd generation, rooted in the blue granite hillsides of Côte de Brouilly, in southern Beaujolais. Farmed with organic practices, this comes from the climate Brulhie, and vines from 15-60 rooted in a mix of 70% blue volcanic rocks, and 30% deep pink granite. As is typical for Bojo, this was semi-carbonic and macerated over 2 weeks before aging for 8 months in large and small barrels. Ample purple and blue florals and fruits lead this lighter mineral-driven red, with finely grippy tannins and pixellated acidity in harmony to a snappy, lightly sticky finish. Nice to drink quality Cru Bojo with some age, seek out and crack into now.Tasted: 16 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: Dominique et Christiane LacondemineDistributors: Liberty Wine Imports
