2012 Château de La Chaize Brouilly Vieilles Vignes


Château De La Chaize is one of the oldest, most historic estates in the Beaujolais region; the estate gardens and the main Château building were designed by the same architect and gardener of the Château de Versailles. The Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is 100% Gamay made from the oldest vineyards of the estate, ranging from 55-75 years old. Small yields from these vines create a smaller production of wine and a complex, concentrated structure. Drink now or cellar for 7-10 years!

Brouilly is known as the powerhouse of the Beaujolais Cru. It is here where the Gamay variety is strongly influence by the granite soils that dominate the area. Granite is what gives many of the wines in the Rhône their power, and it impacts Gamay in a similar way. The wines here have richness like Syrah, but elegance and brightness more akin to Pinot Noir. Wines from Brouilly are amazing when young, but can also be incredible with age.
