Review: 2006 Potel-Aviron Cote de Brouilly Vielles Vignes


Beaujolais mania continues at Drinkhacker with this Cote de Brouilly from Potel-Aviron.

It’s a really tough wine to crack, with some astringency and hefty earth notes, plus pepper, mint, and tobacco smoke. The core Gamay fruit is straightjacketed by the other elements in the bottle. It’s drinkable (and works better with a big dinner), but it’s not my favorite on its own. Interesting, though, to see such a tannic wine come from the traditionally fruity Beaujolais region.
