The Brouilly Wine Region

The largest of the Beaujolais crus, and named after Bruilius, a Roman Lieutenant who settled here, Brouilly's 1200 hectares of land are located in the south of the Beaujolais region, surrounding Mont Brouilly (a dormant volcano, which in turn has it's own cru, Cote De Brouilly).

The characteristics of a Brouilly wine are typically light, fruity and slightly earthy, with it's aromas encompassing a variety of fruits including cherries and current with a purple colouring. Domaine Dubost produce Brouilly over 3.20 hectares in the south-east, and it is very popular.
