Brouilly Nicolas BOUDEAU

Grain of Expression - Garanches

Quintessence and subtlety ...

This cuvee is a celebration of our first decade as an artisan-winemaker. The 2017 vintage, very generous, allowed us to test the alchemy between various species of selected oaks and wines with soft and subtle tannins.The aging of 18 months in barrels brings structure and power to this already complex cuvée. Well balanced. Cellar capacity of more than 10 years ...

Deep; limpid and shiny garnet color

Small jammy, black fruits and kirsh notes - wrapped in vanilla, spices and a hint of caramel and cocoa.

Great complexity for this racy - very structured and powerful wine that will benefit with some cellaring. Fresh, salivating and balanced finish.
