Brouilly has much charm (like Saint Amour) yet also structure and ageing potential (like Morgon). Once the family seat of the Barons de Vauxonne, Château des Loges is now a great cellar owned by 150 growers. This red has superb juicy berry flavours.
Château des Loges Brouilly is 100% Gamay, hand harvested from old vines trained as free standing bushes (en gobelet). The granite rich soils (known as roche pourrie or ,rotten rock,) add characteristic mineral quality to this delicious Beaujolais Cru. In a world where investment millions can distort fine wine prices Beaujolais offers a refreshing respite. As Jancis Robinson MW points out, it'sa ,delightful wine style you should not overlook if you view wine as something to be drunk and enjoyed, (Financial Times). And there'splenty to enjoy. 2011 is a superb vintage, as shown by this wine'sexceptional colour and luscious fruit. Great drinking now and with potential to age. Pair with anything from charcuterie to roast red meats.
