Producer Note
With over 42 years' experience, Olivier Ravier is one of the most iconic and respected
winemakers in Beaujolais. He is a former President of the Beaujolais growers association
and has been appointed as an expert at the National Institute of the French wines
appellation by the French government. His in-depth knowledge of the region, its
climate, and the Gamay variety, is second-to-none. Living in the heart of the Fleurie
appellation, he produces wines which overflow with typicity from the Beaujolais terroir.
Recently he has also branched out to producing wine in the Mâconnais region
bringing his expertise in the vinification of the Chardonnay grape.
Vineyard
Brouilly is the largest and most southerly of the 10 Beaujolais Crus. The vineyard is
situated at the foot of the volcanic Mount Brouilly. The climate is a semi-continental;
winters are cold and summers are generally warm. Due to its southerly location, Brouilly
tends to produce riper fruit flavours than the other Crus. The 20 year old vines are
grown in granite soils which provide excellent drainage for the vines. The vines are free
standing bush vines pruned according to the Gobelet method.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested at optimal ripeness and underwent a temperature
controlled semi-carbonic maceration, lasting between eight to 10 days. The wine was
pressed and 100% underwent malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer expression on
the palate. The wine was made in an unoaked style to retain the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
An elegant Brouilly showing concentrated aromas of black berried fruits, especially
black cherry and a hint of spice. Ripe and vibrant black fruits are echoed on the
palate, which is structured with soft tannins and a charming, silky finish.
