About The Wine
The Georges Descombes Brouilly is a light, bouncy expression of this famous site - charged with a gravelly/mineral intensity derived from Brouilly's granite soils.
It's a jubilant wine, full of energy and life. A treat for those who seek lighter reds with a big personality.
Organically-farmed and made with minimal intervention, this is an excellent example of the plushness and accessibility of this famous cru.
Drink now or cellar over the medium term.
About Georges Descombes
Georges Descombes is the son of a Beaujolais vigneron who found his inspiration for his own label in the legendary wines of local legend, Marcel Lapierre.
Whilst working on the bottling line for many of the local producers, Georges was taken with the purity and finesse of the wines of Lapierre who's natural approach has carved a path for so many in the region. Georges has taken his father's traditional farming practices to another level, now having both his inherited and acquired vineyards certified organic and choosing a hands-off approach in the cellar.
Considered the unofficial fifth member of the legendary "Gang of Four" of top-flight Beaujolais revolutionaries, his wines are of the highest repute.
