Ageing potential

A wine full of charm and vivacity in its youth. It will develop finesse and elegance after several years (3 to 8 years).


Origins

The appellation “Côte-de-Brouilly” was first authorised in 1934 with the vineyard owners on the Brouilly hillside concerned that the wine would lose its identity with the recent extension of the “Broully” appellation. Côte-de-Brouilly is considered richer and more structured in style than Brouilly.


Terroir

The vineyard, situated totally on the steep slopes of Mount Brouilly is at 400 metres and faces South- West.

It is on granite and very hard schist, of blue colour referred to ask “diorites”.

Mount Brouilly is a former volcano dating back to the Primary era.


Vine and soil

Age of Vines: 56 years-old.
Yield: 52 hectolitres per hectare.

Plots: From a selected vineyard situated at the base of the steep Mont Brouilly slopes, with a rigorous selection on the property of the partner-grower. The vineyard faces East but benefits from fine sunshine thanks to the rounded hillside. The vines are pruned “en gobelet” and managed with sustainable farming methods.
