The most southerly of all the Crus, Brouilly has good colour, backbone and is full-bodied revealing aromas of plums and peaches. "Les Brulées" is a beautiful single vineyard of 0.7 hectares located on the "plateau de Bel-Air". The vines of this plot have been planted in 1949 and 1950. The sub-soil of this plot is crossed by some aluminium veins, which causes frequent lightning fall on the plot, hence the name "The Brulées" which means "The Burned".
Traditional vinification with controlled temperature.
