This is a refreshing but pretty serious Beaujolais; it is recommended to drink with charcuterie, paté, cheese, roast ham, roast lamb, roast chicken and turkey and with spicy Thai and Chinese dishes
Serve at the lower end of the suggested temperature range if you like your light red wines served cooler like the French

"The 2017 Brouilly Vieilles Vignes offers up notes of sweet cherries, raspberries and ripe plums. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, with good concentration and youthfully chewy tannins that avoid the rusticity of which this appellation is capable."

"60- to 80-year-old vines. Granite soils. Carbonic maceration. Aged on lees for six months in old oak barrels. Has some of the banana character supposedly revealing of carbonic maceration, as well as pleasing primary red fruit and a soft brush of tannins on the finish. Really satisfying – typically beaujolais, but really complex and lengthy too."

"More depth than most Beaujolais, plus delightful violets, raspberry and dark cherry tinged with an earthy minerality that lingers. Average vine age 70 years."

"Grown on granite soils, these vines are undergoing conversion to biodynamics. They range between 60-80 years old, and produce a fairly rich style of Beaujolais that has a fleshy, juicy cherry character with some grip. There's a sweet red apple note on the mid-palate which is followed by plenty of spice and a touch of cream - a result of the six months spent on its lees in neutral barrels."
