Bret Brothers was set up in early August 2001 with the aim of producing very fine terroir wines, mainly from the Mâcon wine-producing region in Southern Burgundy.
This undoubtedly ambitious objective, demands a set of strict specifications, which are very important to them, namely; selecting small plots of old vines being worked by enthusiastic wine-growers, on very specific terroir ; buying-in only standing grapes (All grapes bought are certified Organic) ; hand-picking of ripe grapes by their own team; vinification using 100% natural yeasts; matured and bottled in-house; all these steps are performed with the same care, the same passion as for the grapes coming from their own La Soufrandière estate. They are currently producing around 55,000 bottles in 20 different cuvées, from a total of around 10 ha. Since the 2013 vintage, we have also been expanding our range with the fine wines from the Beaujolais region (Fleurie and Morgon), magical terroirs too long overlooked. They have been certified Demeter Biodynamic since 2006.
This is the southernmost Cru of the Beaujolais. This beautiful, south-facing parcel is located at the foothill of Mount Brouilly on clay-limestone soils. The resulting wines are ripe and concentrated. This Brouilly was fermented with 50% whole clusters, and the tannins are slightly more apparent here.
Wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, berries, smoked meats and violets, the 2018 Brouilly La Pilonière is medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with an enveloping core of fruit, lively acids and a long, sapid finish. It's a charming, flavorful wine that was half destemmed and matured in used oak barrels for 10 months.
