Waking up Mont Brouilly's buried barrels

What happens when we bury an extraordinary vintage wine under an exceptionnal terroir? From this question began the project of putting in dormancy 2 vintages of Brouilly and one vintage of a Côte de Brouilly, in April, 2016.

18 months later, it's time to wake up those wines to discover the impacts of this new breeding technique into the Mount Brouilly's geosite ground.

On monday, October the 16th, wine growers are gathering to take out the barrels and taste it !

Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
