The 2019 Côte de Brouilly unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet berries, warm spices, loamy soil and potpourri. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and tightly wound, with bright acids and powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish. True to the Lafarge style, this is a classically balanced, age-worthy rendition of the appellation. Drink: 2023 - 2036.

Fred Lafarge and Chantal (Vial) Lafarge have pieced together a small 4-hectare domaine in the Beaujolais, with vineyards in Fleurie and Chiroubles. They have found vielles vignes (ranging from 30 to 70 years old) in 5 terroirs, most of which were already organic. In the Lafarge style, they immediately began their conversion to biodynamic viticulture. In one of the crus, Joie du Palais, the slope is 52%, and a few of the rows must be worked by horse.
