Another masterpiece by Didier Desvignes who is a genius with the Gamay grape. Coming from vineyards close to the Mont de Brouilly where the soil gives a finesse to the wines, this is a very fruity and easy drinking wine with bags of blackcurrant and raspberry fruit. This is an ideal wine for simply quaffing with some charcuterie or at its finest with a duck breast or a simple coq au vin.

Brouilly is the most southerly of all of the crus of the Beaujolais and is also the most extensive in terms of the area it covers. With the Mont de Brouilly at the centre the vineyards extend around the base and tend to be the earliest ripening of all of the crus. They have good eastern exposure.
