Georges Descombes Brouilly


2016 Georges Descombes 'Brouilly' Gamay. Beaujolais-FRANCE. 750ml

Georges Descombes has, once again, produced a sensational Brouilly from his superb, steep sloped parcel opposite the Mont Brouilly. 2016 is back to a classic cruchy, sapid style following the lustrous and richer 2015 vintage. This wine has a very alluring,  fragrant bouquet - a bright and floral nose offset again by red cherry and cranberry fruit. In the mouth it is divine, tightly wound with taught elegance, a refreshing mineral bite and fine definition. On the finish it’s juiciness is offset perfectly buy a refreshing, stony finish. Once again the granite soils of Brouilly have given this wine a sublime gravelly crunch. Superb drinking
