Oenotourisme France - A la découverte de l'AOC Brouilly - Les Grappes

Discovering the AOC Brouilly

After Moulin-à-Vent and Chénas, Laetitia Allemand takes us today to Brouilly. Do you know the AOC Brouilly? It is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus. Produced in the Rhône department, the AOC Brouilly owes its name to the Mont Brouilly which is in the centre of the appellation. Present on Parisian counters and in great restaurants, Brouilly is a surprising wine. Fruity, it goes well with many dishes, from Bresse poultry to springtime grilled meats. Immediate boarding with Laetitia Allemand, direction Beaujolais to discover the AOC Brouilly!

The village of Brouilly

Here we are in front of the pretty castle of Pierreux. It's an old fortified house from the 13th century and one of the beautiful Beaujolais houses that you often come across when you travel through the region. The château has its vines right next door. Let's go !

The vineyards of the AOC Brouilly, wine of the Beaujolais region

Here, we make red wine exclusively. It is a fruity wine with a lot of finesse that is generally drunk between 2 and 5 years of age. But which supports very well to age. You can easily keep the AOC Brouilly more than 10 years!

Tasting advice of AOC Brouilly

Think of accompanying the Brouilly with a Bresse poultry, for the end of year festivities for example. I personally think it's a nice spring wine! To be preferred with salads and grilled meats in fine weather!

Brouilly is a pleasant wine that can be found on Parisian counters: in bistros, brasseries but also in palaces and even in some great restaurants, like Fouquet's where it has had its place on the wine list for years!

That's to say if we're not at the end of our surprises with a Brouilly !
