Côte de Brouilly, Cru Beauljolais Domaine Dumas 2013

August 17, 2018

Côte de Brouilly is one of the smallest and most sort after of the 10 Cru Beaujolais appellations allowed to put the village name on the label. Known locally as ” the elegant wine from the hill”, namely Mont Brouilly. If you feel energetic, walk to the top of this dormant volcano and take in the tremendous views over Beaujolais whilst enjoying lunch with a glass or two of this special wine.
This is hard terroir—literally poor granite and shale soil from the high slopes lessens the vigour and yield of the Gamay grape. The result is that it commands a premium as a higher quality wine, elegant and with excellent concentration of flavour.
Pierre André Dumas took over the family vineyard in 1999 and has won many international awards for his wines. He is a flag-bearer for the unique wines of Brouilly and their unusual semi-carbonic fermentation process.
Deep purple colour with floral notes of violets, peony, wild blackberry and plums. In the mouth soft and smooth  tannins, red berries with hints of forest and a final peppery kick. This wine from the 2013 vintage has now passed through sweet adolescence and taken on beguiling Burgundian overtones. It is versatile and food friendly so can take on many different dishes— try it slightly chilled when  you want something different.
