TASTING NOTES

"Unfurling in the glass with aromas of rose petal, cassis, currant leaf and spices, Foillard’s 2016 Brouilly is deeper and more reserved than his Côte de Brouilly, with more concentration, density and flesh. The wine is produced from a higher-altitude parcel of older vines, growing in pure granite, and it is matured half in cement, half in used barrels." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"A very fresh attack with crunchy, energetic blueberries and redcurrants, delivering a plush, supple pastry-like palate. Some essences of cherry pie and raspberries here. Very fresh acidity and stony texture. This parcel is elevated and grows straight on the primary rock, giving the wine plenty of compressed, dense power and sapid freshness. 50% oak and 50% concrete elevage. Give this until 2020, and it will deliver a decade of drinking." JamesSuckling.com

"Brilliant ruby. Aromas of fresh red/blue fruits, violet and smoky minerals pick up a hint of smokiness as the wine opens up. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy boysenberry and raspberry flavors that put on weight with air. Finishes smooth and sappy, displaying strong tenacity, a lingering blue fruit note and velvety tannins that sneak in slowly." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com
