Winemaking

Tasting note

The nose is characterized by aromas of red fruits, in particular wild strawberries. In the mouth the fruit is crisp with notes of wild strawberries which recur. The Brouilly 2013 seduces with its fruit and soft, mellow tanins. Lovely length in the mouth emphasized by these fine tannins.

Suggested food pairings

Bold cheeses, T-bone steak or ribeyes, barbequed red meats, charcuterie and refined hors d'oeuvres.
