Our Brouilly Château de la Terrière 2019 shines with 2 stars in the last Guide Hachette des Vins 2022, a selection of the 8’000 best wines of France. (Reference for more than 30 years)
“Coup de Coeur” with the 2018 vintage, this Brouilly is featured again in those pages with a seductive 2019 vintage, offering an intense ripe red fruits nose complemented by some spices. Seduction carries on the palate where the wine is generous, rich and fleshy, displaying the same intense fruitiness with velvety tannins.
