Vignes Centenaires 2014 - Brouilly

The opinion of the sommelier

This Brouilly impressed me with its refinement and power. The uncommon nose starts the party with nice aromas of fruits and peonies. On the palate, you will feel again this deep intensity along with minerality, this salty like impression that characterizes the best Brouilly, the most famous of the ten “Cru” of the Beaujolais region. 



Domaine des Cadoles’ three hectares are planted on a granitic soil. The main characteristic of granitic soils is that it has strong filtering properties and therefore let the water gets deep taking on the way nutrients away from the roots. So it submits the vines to a high level of water stress. It’s a good thing for gamay as its lazy variety has to be challenged to reveal its full potential.

lecepage Grape variety

1395 is the year everything changed for gamay. Indeed, it is the year Philipe Le Hardi, Duke of Burgundy, decided that only pinot noir could be cultivated in Burgundy, and that gamay had to be grown in Beaujolais, at the south border of his duchy. Nowadays, gamay is still the only black variety grown in Beaujolais, but it spread a little and you can also taste nice wines from gamay in the Loire Valley and in Switzerland.

lemillesime Vintage

In the Beaujolais, vintages that end by a « 4 » are known for being usually disappointing. It was not the case in 2014. At first, it seems that the malediction would carry on in 2014. But everything changed during August’s two last weeks which resulted incredibly warm and sunny. This unexpected turn of event allowed the grapes to ripen at high speed which concentrated the berries and developed these nice ripen fruits aromas. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In the Beaujolais region, wine estates usually cover dozens of hectares. Julien Duport, Régis Luttenauer and Denis Vedrinne made a different choice and bought only 3 hectares. But not any hectares ! Indeed, their vines are located on the best terroir of Brouilly and have one particularity : they are more than 100 years old on average ! The three friends care a lot about their vines which repay them with amazing grapes allowing them to elaborate exclusive batches of great Brouilly.
