Grape varieties

White-juiced Gamay noir

Terroir

On a due east-facing 5.5 ha hillside, on a formation of the first foothills of the Massif Central, with a soil of friable pink granite containing little organic matter. Two cadoles (dry-stone huts), one from the 18th century, testify to the historic nature of this terroir.
This is a part of the appellation that we particularly like, for the Granitic purity and its poor soils that give distinctive wines with very elegant fruit aromas.

Cultivation

Grassed or tilled strips break up this terroir prone to storms, little sensitivity to diseases because of the well-drained soil, demands few treatments in Summer. The grapes are picked by hand and transported in small trays in order to preserve their quality.

Vinification

Vinification in whole bunches in our hillside cellars, whose successive levels allow us to make maximum use of gravity, so as to avoid using either pumps or conveyors for the grapes.
Maceration for only 8 days in order to capture all the freshness of the fruit, matured for 7 months in cement vats.

Tasting

Beautiful cherry red colour, floral, fruity bouquet, round on the palate with fresh garden fruits; underpinned by supple tannins. Serving temperature: 14–16°C.

Serve with wine

A wine that can be enjoyed throughout a whole meal!
It goes marvellously well with cold cuts and white meats.

Brouilly «Reverdon» Ratings and awards

The Wine Advocate

«The 2020 Brouilly Reverdon has turned out very nicely, bursting with aromas of wild plums, spices, berry fruit, violets and figs. Medium to fullbodied, rich and layered, with a concentrated core of fruit and impressively tangy acids, it's reminiscent of a livelier version of its 2018. - William Kelley counterpart.»

«I love the delicate red-berry and rose-petal aromas of this very elegant, mid-weight red. It’s so understated, but has such great harmony, the discreet tannins and mineral acidity powering the long, sleek and cool finish. Drink or hold.»
La Tulipe Rouge

3/4

«Fin bouquet de groseille et de pivoine, bouche lumineuse, pleine de fruits, terriblement addictive, qui laisse un goût frais, désaltérant et finement poivré. Alors oui, c’est un vin simple. C’est aussi une délicieuse gourmandise génialement conçue qui s’ouvre sans recommandation si ce n’est celle de ne pas en abuser. A fine bouquet of redcurrant and peony and a bright, slightly peppery feel to a palate packed with fruit. This is highly addictive, leaving the palate fresh and one’s thirst quenched. Yes, this may seem straightforward but it is also quite delicious, perfectly made and highly commendable. Just don’t overdo it!»

«The 2019 Brouilly Reverdon is performing well, mingling aromas of cherries and berries with hints of spices and loamy soil in an appealing bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with lively acids and fine tannins, it's classically proportioned and full of charm. - William Kelley»

«Lively acidity cuts through the bright cherry and currant notes of this mouthwatering red, showing details of white pepper, wet stone and dried herb that dovetail onto the finish. Offers light, integrated tannins, with great energy and focus throughout. Drink now through 2024. 1,900 cases imported. —GS»

«Arômes typés 2017: riches, "solaires" et précis, de fruits noirs, violettes... Le vin est concentré, gourmand, velouté et bien équilibré. Un Brouilly déjà délicieux et qui vieillira très bien. CT»
