(2016) A special parcel of Brouilly, named Brulées or “burned” because lightning strikes often and has fairly regularly incinerated a vine or two. “Perhaps the lightning means there is iron in the soil,” muses Laurent. Very nice intense nose, lots of almost blue/black fruit with blueberry and blackberry, even fresh raspberry lift, and a firm spicy palate, Tight and structured, with lots of grip but lovely legth and tension as well as silky tannins.
