2018 is a great vintage for Piron. The Beaujolais Brouilly is full-bodied, nicely structured and intense. Huge volume of fruit all wrapped up tightly in a textured, gripping package. 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.
‘Cherry and spice, new leather and perfume of dried herb and flowers. Medium-bodied, grainy but ripe tannin, a certain stickiness and savoury edge, ample fruit, perhaps some dark chocolate in the mix, and a solid finish. Delivers the goods, and offers depth and enjoyment with it.’ 92 points – Gary Walsh, The Winefront
