Brouilly is an appellation for red wines produced in vineyards in central-north Beaujolais. The lower slopes of Mont Brouilly and the surrounding countryside contain significant plantings of the Gamay grape. Relatively robust and full-bodied wines are made and the wines are more fruit driven than many of the other Beaujolais cru wines.
Brouilly is the southernmost of the Beaujolais Cru and produces wines which are firm and full bodied.
This cru is the largest of Beaujolais and its geology is multiple. The vines of Brouilly form a belt Mount Brouilly, this hill stands out from the other Beaujolais hills. From their conception, the qualities of Jacques Charlet wines are the fruit of our intimate knowledge of Beaujolais and Burgundian terroirs, combined with the painstaking labour of the men and women who work there.
