Brouilly is the largest and furthest south of the Beaujolais crus. It has good south eastern exposure, at the bottom of the Saône Valley at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres. The subsoil consists of granite debris and blue-tinged schist. The 2016 is lush, full-bodied (for a Beaujolais) and full of dark cherry fruit. The wine coats the mouth but never tips over into heaviness, always maintaining fresh, crunchy fruit.
