Georges Duboeuf 2017 Brouilly Beaujolais France
92 points James Suckling - Extremely aromatic and fresh with crushed-cherry and floral aromas that follow through to a medium body, succulent acidity, a soft texture and a juicy finish.
This Brouilly displays a shimmering garnet color, and has concentrated aromas of black fruits – especially cassis. It is medium-bodied and well-structured, with soft tannins and a silky finish.
Winemaker Notes - Harvesting of this wine is done manually, in whole bunches, from vines that are over 20 years old. Semi-carbonic maceration lasts from six to eight days and malolactic fermentation is conducted at temperatures between 26 to 28 degrees Celsius (79 to 82 degrees Farenheit) in stainless steel tanks.
Interesting Fact - Brouilly, the most southerly of the Beaujolais “crus”, is also the most exuberant. It is the biggest “cru” in terms of volume and the most extensive. Its vines form a cordon around the base of the impressive Mont Brouilly, stretching over the six communes of Odenas, Quincié, Cercié, Saint Lager, Charentay and Saint Etienne la Varenne.
Serving Suggestions - A wine that lends itself to all occasions, from the aperitif to the cheese board, this wine works with appetizers and charcuterie -- as well as roasted poultry, pork chops, and lasagna.
