Region: Cote de Brouilly - Beaujolais, FRA
One of Beaujolais’ more reclusive growers, Daniel Bouland makes some of the most old school and expressive wines in the whole of the region. Hand harvested from old Gamay vines in the Morgon lieux-dits of Corcelette, Bellevue and Delys, Bouland's wines are defiantly deep, dark, country-style reds with plenty of grip and overflowing with personality.
One of the more powerful wines in the range, Bouland's 2020 Côte de Brouilly Cuvée Melanie exhibits aromas of blueberry preserve, plummy fruit and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and muscular, it's deeply concentrated and framed by rich, powdery tannins and ripe acids.
