Maturing in stainless steel tanks. Fining with egg-whites. Natural tartaric stabilizing thanks to the cold winter temperature. Aging in Vat.

Tasting Notes Pale plus dark purple red. Aromatically, this cru is immediately inviting, showing a youthful, expressive and gently warm fragrance of nuanced dark fruit and berries. The palate in contrast is undeveloped and restrained with hidden dark fruits. This medium-bodied wine has a soft fleshy center and a very fine, well-calibrated structure. This excellent Brouilly will show its full qualities by early 2016. - RB
