Dominique Piron Brouilly 2013

I visited Beaujolais last year and against the weight of popular opinion have long liked the wines of the region.  My post is here.  If the region ever returns to fashion – and it’s such a beautiful region too – all the better.  This is a Brouilly (gamay) from Dominique Piron, and is quite a serious effort.  Deeply coloured (for a Beaujolais) it has aromatics of raspberry and spice.  The palate is balanced and the tannins provide texture and interest.
