One of the ten cru-sites of the French area Beaujolais, which is an enclave in the middle of the cru-site Brouilly. The vineyards cover 325 hectares of vines and surround the Brouilly hill (an extinct volcanic cone). The special soil structure of granite and blue-green slate is known here as "Cornes vertes" (green horn). The red wines are made from the Gamay variety. The full-bodied, powerful wines are considered to be even more long-lasting than those from Brouilly.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
