Terroir Notes: The plot is located in the town of Quincié in Beaujolais on the Saburin Mountain. It faces Mont Brouilly and culminates at an altitude of 500 meters. The plot is planted on sandy soil with a granite subsoil. The Gamay vines were planted in 2000.

Winemaking Notes: Whole bunches vinified in a truncated wooden vat. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with indigenous yeast. The goal for the Brouilly was gentle extraction, thanks to pump overs and light punch downs. The wine aged for 18 months in Burgundy barrels. It was bottled without fining or filtering.
