Côte de Brouilly Gamay noir à jus blanc

HVE - Haute Valeur Environnementale
Côte de Brouilly - Domaine du Père Benoit


With an intense ruby colour, its nose reveals red fruit aromas, a generous body and a good balance between the tannins and the fruit acidity.
This Côte de Brouilly is best enjoyed with white meat, a cold meat platter or cheese.
