DOMAINE CRET DES GARANCHESIn the south of Mont Brouilly, Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin, viticultrice, produced of Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly and cultivate with conviction her 11.60 ha of vines, type of vine Gamay black with white juice. It patiently matures its wine to obtain vintages worthy of its grandfathers vine growers, present at Odenas since 1752. The wine then takes its robe ruby and its aromas of red fruits and flowers in the cellar. The permanent attention and the passion of Sylvie Dufaitre-Genin make the remainder.
“For several years, she specifies, the Crêt des Garanches has engaged in a respectful step of nature by removing the use of insecticides on its estate. In order to guarantee the good development of the vines of Gamay black to white juice which produces the wine of the winegrowing, it is the natural regulation of fauna and the local flora which fills its work. Every year, the vines, of a 40 years average of age, is gathered the grapes with the hand. Then these grapes are vinified according to the traditional method beaujolaise, which confers on Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly their so particular characters.”
A reference, with this Côte-de-Bbrouilly 2017, Gamay World Gold Medals and in Mâcon, with these intense scents where dominate the well-ripe red berries (redcurrant, blackberry), firm and scented on the palate, with balanced tannins, a wine that combines structure and distinction, of excellent evolution. The Brouilly Cuvée Spéciale 2017, with its nose of ripe fruits and humus, with hints of raspberry and pepper, is dense and persistent, a success.
As for Brouilly 2017, black Gamay mono grape variety with white juice, vines 40 years old on average, it is particularly tasty and finely bouqueté, with intense ruby colour, the nose of ripe red fruits (blackcurrant, cherry), with round tannins, a wine that is both powerful and supple, and 2018, in line, arrives on the market.
