Quick Overview

From one block of 80 year old vines - La Roche. 100% de-stemmed, 3 weeks maceration and elevage in 2-5 year-old barrels ex the Clos du Tart,for 18 months. Deep, almost impenetrable colour. Equally deep and serious nose. The palate shows plenty of tannin and an incredible depth and wealth of black-skinned fruit. Impressive hardly does justice to this wine, Beaujolais on steroids!

Details

Pierreux is located at the heart of Brouilly - geographically the widest-ranging of the Beaujolais crus. The vines of the Beaujolais vineyards, with their undulating relief, are characterised by very dense plantation and exposure to all four points of the compass. Pierreux is no exception to this rule. Here, in shallow, highly absorbent sandy soil consisting of pink granite dotted with blue porphyry stones (hurled out several million years ago by the Brouilly volcano), 80 Year old Gamay vines grow in solitary splendour.
Free next day delivery in Ireland for orders of 12 bottles or spend of €150 when ordered before 1pm. Otherwise, just 7.50
