Georges Descombes Brouilly VV 2018
Georges Descombes Brouilly Vieilles Vignes is sensational value for a Beaujolais Cru. The nose opens with violet florals, strawberry and slightly herbal notes. Light, refreshing acidity and silky tannins on the dry palate. Bright strawberry and raspberry flavours mingle around a mineral pillar and hints of blackberry.
100% Gamay. The fruit for this wine comes from old vines in a 3.5 hectare vineyard on steep slopes in Brouilly, organic farming.
Carbonic maceration with whole clusters then a slow vertical press to finish the fermentation. Ageing in old wooden casks. No additives, a small addition of SO2 before bottling.
