The name and reputation enjoyed by Brouilly, a Cru du Beaujolais, is a fairly recent phenomenon. The Brouilly “Les Saburins” is produced from grapes grown on the ideally situated southerly facing pink granite slopes which gain maximum exposure to the sun’s warming rays. As a result the Gamay fruit produced reaches maximum ripeness. Once harvested, by hand, the fruit is fermented in whole bunches of grapes in open vats. Brouilly “Les Saburins” is a soft, perfumed wine which marries tenderness with richness.
