Château de Pierreux, Brouilly AOC, 2018, Beaujolais, France


This wine is an intense purple colour. Lively aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and blueberry, with aromatic sweet spices and a medium body. Good structure, well built, and refined. An excellent bottle indeed.

There's Beaujolais... and then there's Beaujolais Cru. It's a completely different animal. While generic Beaujolais can be light, overly fruity, candied, and sometimes thin - the 10 premium cru appellations of Beaujolais produce wines with so much more. Meatier, punchy, structured, and bursting with energy and life. They are so so good, and in a way it's hard to think that they get called Beaujolais... because there are so different.

Château de Pierreux is a 77 hectare estate situated in the heart of Brouilly. It is one of the finest domaines in the Beaujolais region, with a magnificent château and winery built during the Renaissance. It has been managed by Jean-Claude Boisset since the 2002 vintage.
