2018 Brouilly "Roche Rose" Albert Bichot
Located in the southern Beaujolais, Brouilly is one of the most well-known and geographically widespread vineyards in the region. The vines here flourish on a steep slope composed of diverse types of soil and rock, but which are predominantly pink granite ("gohr") based.
This Brouilly Roche Rose is redolent of subtle aromas of wild cherry, blackcurrant, and blackberry with a hint of spice. The palate is refreshing and fleshy with supple, well-integrated tannins. The finish is refreshing with lasting fruitiness.
This wine is a fine accompaniment to barbecued, grilled and roasted meats, as well as mild cheeses.
