Domaine Emmanuel Fellot Les Cailloux Cote de Brouilly 2020
Deliciously juicy Brouilly, with smoky, spicy plum, damson and ripe strawberry notes
The initial attack is fresh and lively, with juicy, ripe red and black fruit. The plum and strawberry carries through to the mid-palate, where they take on deeper, more brooding hints of spice and smoke. Middling acidity and rip but grippy tannins, tie it all together. Balanced and big on flavour. Emmanuel Fellot employ sustainable farming methods and are in the process of converting to fully organic viticulture, as well as ensuring that their wines are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
"The old Chateau of Pierre Filant is a family estate that was purchased by the Fellot family back in 1829. Since then the Fellot family has transformed the old estate into a thriving family heritage of farming, growing vines and making wine. In 1991, Emmanuel took over the estate after his father and started making his own wine. The vineyards were planted between 1927 and 1948 by his Grandfather and Father, which include both rootstocks of Gamay Noir and Chardonnay. He makes a Beaujolais Blanc, a Beaujolais-Villages and Beaujolais Nouveau from his different plots. He is also proud to announce the recent purchase of vines in Cote de Brouilly “Vieilles Vignes,” - soon more outstanding wine will be made by the Emmanuel Fellot estate."
