    While the 2015 vintage for Beaujolais produced wines of structure and depth, the 2016 vintage yielded wines that emphasize elegance and grace. The slightly cooler vintage favors villages like Brouilly and Fleurie. This tandem of towns has produced tremendous buzz in the wine world over the last few years. The old vine bottling from Les Freres Perroud displays all of the hallmarks of great Brouilly; crunchy red fruit, medium body, just a hint of tannic grip, and a long clean finish comprised of fresh strawberries and herbs. It is remarkably food friendly and its versatility is without peer.

    With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, the time for warm weather reds is now. While fruit and power dominated the 2015 vintage in Beaujolais (and most of France), the focus for 2016 in Beaujolais is on elegance with a favorable harmony of fruit and acid. The Brouilly “Vielles Vignes” smells like freshly picked strawberries and tastes like gorgeous ripe blackberries, with a nice cinnamony bite on the mid palate and an energetic finish that reflects the sand, clay and granitic soils of the area. Like the majority of Gamay wines this a winner with any meal. I drank this last night with pasta and homemade pesto. Not a traditional pairing but it turned out to be a party in my mouth that I didn’t want to end.

    The age of the vines (65 years) shows in the density of the middle yet the deep blue fruit flavors remain juicy and fresh. The finish hints at granite, iron and earth in this serious tasting super bargain that could handle just about any kind of cuisine from rustic to elegant.

    I like all of the Perroud wines that we have in stock now but the Vieilles Vignes Brouilly is perhaps my favorite. It has beautiful inviting aromas that are bright and expressive. In the mouth there are round and lively fruit flavors that are balanced and structured. Ready to drink now, it will also go well with pork, chicken or maybe even salmon. There is a lot of wine for the price.
