Brouilly en Saburin Pollen
The estate dates back to 1789 (French Revolution) and has been owned by the Perroud Family since. Today, Robert, 7th generation, manages the organically farmed domaine and beautifully crafts terroir driven gamay wines: he is considered as one of the best of the Appellation.
A selection of the oldest gamay vines from the south-exposed ‘‘Les Balloquets’’ site comes into this Cuvée. The soils are composed of schist and pink granite with the presence of amethysts. Hand harvested. Semi-carbonic maceration in concrete vats. Indigineous yeasts. Aged 12 months in used Auxey-Duresses wine barrels.
From a selection of the estate's best fruit, this wine is richly structured, firmly textured and likely to age well in the medium term. The black fruits are still young, giving a brightness to the wine that perhaps should be allowed to calm down. Drink this ripe wine from late 2018.
