90pts - The Wine Advocate

“The 2012 Brouilly Cuvee Vieilles Vignes comes from 55- to 75-year-old vines and undergoes complete carbonic maceration, after which it spends 9 to 12 months in wooden cask. It has much more fruite on the nose compared to the regular cuvee: red currant coulis and raspberry leaf. The palate is sweet and quite dense on the entry, with notes of strawberry, sour cherry and lemon. This is very composed on the finish, long in the mouth and just a lovely Brouilly full of succulence and flavor. Drink now-2019. This Brouilly-based producer boasts one of the most historic castles in the region, the building designed by Mansard and the garden by Lenotre. Around half of the vines are over 50 years old, the wines fermented in stainless steel and drawn by gravity into oak casks. Both wines are well worth seeking out, especially the Cuvee Vieilles Vignes.”

 

90pts - Wine & Spirits

“Selected from vines that are more than 50 years old, this wine ages in Burgundy barrels, where it has picked up some oak tannins to fill out its structure. Powerful and compressed into a dark, peppery mouthful of umami flavor, with the meatiness of beef, it’s built to cellar. Then serve with a steak smothered in mushrooms.”
