Brouilly

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.
