Domaine Les Roches Bleues Brouilly
This delight, grown on the bluey-purple soils of Mont Brouilly, is a stunner. Raspberry acidity is matched with a distinctive savoury, earthy edge reminiscent of good Cabernet Franc. Fresh and fruity but with a distinctive savoury, white pepper and coriander edge.
The old vines growing in this favoured corner of Brouilly, grow on the manganese rich 'les roches bleues' soils under the 1585 foot Mont Brouilly. The summit of Brouilly has been a place of worship since 1857, when a chapel was built for the protection of the vines from disease. This wine was crafted from a parcel of vines in a single domaine near the summit of this long extinct volcano.
Grapes are hand-picked and whole-berry fermented for 5-8 days (maceration carbonique) followed by a further 2 or 3 on the skins in order to keep plenty of aromatic young fruit yet add a splash of subtle tannins to give greater weight.
Serve lightly chilled or at room temperature. A great lunchtime wine - try with a pastrami rye sandwich - or with peppered steak, preferably al-fresco.
