Cret Des Garanches Brouilly, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
From: Brouilly, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Grape varieties: Gamay
Light bodied but full of concentration, we love this Brouilly for its strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavours with a touch of violet and raspberry leaf.
Forget the watery Beaujolais Nouveau of old, this wine is fresh, concentrated and utterly moreish.
Winemaker and vineyard:
The Cret Des Garanches domaine is owned and run by Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin whose family have been making wine since 1752.
She owns just under 12 hectares of vines in Brouilly and Cote de Brouilly.
The vines are on the typical granitic soil of the Beaujolais which, paired with the Gamay grape can give wines a bright, floral and uniquely fresh character.
