Cote de Brouilly 2014

Stephane Aviron

Terroir: The appellation of Côte de Brouilly sits on the high slopes of the extinct volcano Mont Brouilly and is surrounded by the larger appellation of Brouilly. The Potel Aviron Côte de Brouilly is sourced from two separate vineyards. The first makes up about 75% of the blend and sits in the pour soils facing southwest on the hillside. Vines average 60+ years old. This parcel accounts for the wines depth and structure. The second parcel faces due south with younger vines (40+ years) and contributes ripe juicy fruit to the final blend.

Vinification: The two sources are vinified and aged separately until ready for the final blending and bottling. The wines are macerated and fermented in stainless steel followed by 12 months in the cellar in a combination of new and old oak.

    Old vines, at least 40-years old, are behind this ripely structured wine. It was wood aged to give the extra richness this producer looks for. With concentration and tannins, this cru will age. Drink from 2018.
