Brouilly, Château des loges
2016 Beaujolais, Brouilly Appellation, Cave du Chateau des Loges
- Medium-bodied, fruity flavors, pleasant finish
- Beaujolais, Burgundy
This Brouilly displays a ruby robe with purple tones, a fleshy body with caressing tannins, perfectly balanced. Aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The palate presents silky reds fruits balanced by lively acidity. It is a great vintage
Gamay is delicious on its own, especially with a light chill. It is the quintessential picnic red and goes well with charcuterie, country pâté, and terrines. Subtle tannins and bright acidity make it a great option with Asian food, even dishes with a bit of a spicy kick.
Cave du Château des Loges is in the village of Le Pérréon, just north-west from Villefranche-sur-Saône. Brouilly is one of 10 Crus in the Beaujolais, with neighbours like Régnié and Morgon to the north. In the centre of Brouilly, there is a smaller Cru of its own, Côte de Brouilly, where wines grow on the volcanic slopes of Mont Brouilly, which have a reputation of being suitable for ageing even a bit longer..
