Brouilly Château de la Pierre, Jean Loron, Beaujolais, 2017
100% Gamay hand picked from vines around 50 years old and aged on fine lees in stainless steel vats.
Displaying a ruby red colour with purple hues, this Brouilly is full of charm. The nose shows intense notes of cassis, blackberry and ripe cherries. Well balanced and round, the mouth is silky with a refreshing acidity. Similar notes of dark fruits show on the palate with a rich and plummy final.
Great with roast pork, brie and cherry clafoutis (Fresh cherries baked in a custard-like base with slivered almonds, almond and vanilla extract. Lightly dusted with powdered sugar).
Built during the 12th century, the Château de la Pierre was one of the main fortified sites ensuring the protection of Beaujeu Sirs. Property of Jean Loron, it covers 15 hectares of vines that are 50 years old.
