Wine of Brouilly appellation
The Brouilly AOC has been a recognised commune appellation since 1938. Its vineyards cover around 1,300 hectares, i.e. 20% of the Beaujolais Crus area. Brouilly is the most extensive and southern of the Crus. The communes eligible for the appellation are Cercié, Saint-Lager, Charentay, Odenas, Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne and Quincié. A unique feature of the appellation is the fact that none of the communes it covers bears its name. The most extensive and southern of the Beaujolais Crus gets its name from Mount Brouilly where Brulius, a lieutenant in the Roman army, was once stationed. 

Made exclusively from Gamay Noir à jus blanc (black Gamay with white juice), the wines of Brouilly are of course red wines. The local soils are thin, acidic, dry and not very fertile. Their traits vary depending on the area within the appellation, stamping their character on the wines: pink granite, diorite, marly-limestone substrates, crystalline detritus and fine clay elements. In Cercié, a 22-hectare south-facing hillside produces wines entitled to the Pisse-Vieille designation, which is the only recognised “climat” in Brouilly. Seductive and pleasant, Brouilly is a “bistro wine”, shown by its success on the counters of Parisian bistros: 20% of the Cru's total production is sold in Parisian cafés, hotels and restaurants. 

Pleasant as it may be, Brouilly is nonetheless a quality wine as the wines produced by Maison Coquard, Château de la Chaize, Domaine les Roches Bleues and Domaine du Vissoux go to show.
