What Are We Drinking Now? L. Tramier & Fils Côte de Brouilly

Kerry would like you to up your Gam-ay (without breaking the bank)!

L. Tramier & Fils Côte de Brouilly

This Côte de Brouilly is a wonderful reminder that Gamay, grown predominantly in the Beaujolais region of France, can yield great value-driven wines. While the region may be best-known for the fruity, light style of Beaujolais Nouveau, production quality increases with wines at the village and cru levels. Côte de Brouilly is one of Beaujolais’s 10 cru appellations, and this elegant little wine from L. Tramier delivers for the price!

Vivid aromas of red berries, candied notes, and violets lead to fresh fruit flavors, palette-cleansing acidity, and an earthy finish. Gamay is an incredibly versatile red wine that pairs well with all manner of food from roasted chicken, beef stroganoff, pork sausages, roasted fennel, and brie with cranberry on a Marczyk’s baguette. I’ve enjoyed this wine with roasted duck (pictured), salmon, and cured meats. Along with this little gem, we have several village and cru Beaujolais wines in the shop. Come see us if you’re ready to up your Gam-ay!
