Brouilly Les Roche Bleues 2016 Le cru du Volcan 13.5% 75cl

A textbook Cru Beaujolais - an explosion of sweet brambly raspberry fruit with a dry mid-palate mineral core, yet brimming with soulful purity. The finish is fresh and invigorating.

The old, short goblet trained vines growing in this favoured corner of Brouilly, sit on bluey-purple layers of manganese soil (les roches bleues) under the 1585 foot Mont Brouilly. The summit of Brouilly has also been a place of worship since 1857, when a chapel was built for the protection of the vines from oidium (vine mildew). This wine was crafted from a parcel of vines near the summit of this long extinct volcano (hence Volcan in the name of the wine.
