The southernmost cru of Beaujolais, Cote du Brouilly, also covers one of the smallest areas of any of the ten crus. Each is quirky in its own way with Cote du Brouilly being marked with an ancient volcanic soil and spotted blue stones that cover the hills of Mont Brouilly. Pavillon de Chavannes ‘Cuvée des Ambassades’ - named so as it’s the official wine of French embassies around the world - offers a medium bodied style that incorporates the flavors and characteristics of a Burgundian Pinot Noir but with the soft tannins, fruitiness and refreshing earthiness of an expertly grown Gamay. It bursts with black cherry, gritty minerality, and a floral bouquet that expands into spice and dried herbs.
