Our Domain History
Les Crus du Beaujolais Brouilly Pierreux

Brouilly is the southernmost of the Beaujolais Crus. It is in the heart of our winemaking region and dons a very Beaujolais personality, making this a congenial wine to enjoy on any occasion with a wide variety of dishes. Our plot, at the foot of Mont Brouilly, is covered with granitic scree from Mont Brouilly that gives structure to this wine that is sound an pure on the palate.

Personality of the cuvee

a 1.5 ha plot in Pierreux at the foot of Mont Brouilly. Buying these vines in 2006 took on a family feel, as it was here that Martine’s grandmother was born and spent her youth. The latter’s father was winemaker at Pierreux.

From the vine to the glass

the soil is made up of granitic scree from Mont Brouilly giving structure to this wine that is sound and pure on the palate.

Grape variety: Gamay Integrated vinegrowing, goblet pruning, manual harvest at full ripeness Traditional vinification of Beaujolais: half-carbonic with two pumping per day, maceration 10 to 12 days in vats, no chaptalization, minimum of SO2.
