Cote De Brouilly 2012 Empreintes

Cote De Brouilly 2012 Empreintes

Ref: A005212

A deep coloured wine built for long-term and has fabulous depth and structure, developing well over three-five years in the bottle.

In his mid-thirties, Julien Duport is one of the new generation of hugely talented young growers who are determined to bring the Beaujolais region back to its former glory. He took over his family’s vineyards in 2003 and has worked tirelessly to re-structure them; grass-cover is now the norm and all parcels are ploughed, whatever the gradient of the hillside vineyards.

The Côte de Brouilly “les Empreintes” comes from 0.8ha of vines in the lieu-dit of “Brouilly”, planted on sandy-granite schist and pruned using the double cordon method. The vines in this parcel are over 60 years’ old and the slopes are steep and almost impossible to be mechanised. In the cellars, all wines are vinified parcel by parcel, in 60 hectolitre concrete vats, for an average of 15-18 days, using a system of grills to keep the ‘cap’ immersed in the juice. Minimum intervention is the order of the day, with indigenous yeasts used and no filtration, This cuvée undergoes an élevage in one year old oak barrels for 12 months.
