Notes:

Cru Beaujolais are a big step up from the Village offerings. 

Light and Fruity Beaujolais can be chilled a bit to make a pleasant summer drink but a serious wine? Now more than ever the answer is yes. The named top regions of Beaujolais, called the “Cru’s”, offer unexpected depth, body, and complexity will keeping the appealing fruit flavors. The Brouilly Cru is situated at the foot of Mount Brouilly, an ancient volcanic plug. The resulting degraded granite soils offer a classic terroir for the Gamay grape. In recent years winemakers have been taking full advantage of the region and its grape. 

Brouilly is usually the biggest bodied of the Beaujolais Cru’s and that is the case with Chateau Des Tours, Brouilly, 2016. The wine opens with a nice nose of violets and strawberries which are echoed in the fruit flavors with the edition of some plum. This is balanced with gentle acidity and tannins, a big mouth feel, and some earthy notes in the long finish. A versatile food wine it goes well with pates and cheeses, roast poultry and stews. Try one and find out why more and more Sommeliers are exited about Cru Beaujolais.
