Grandes Bruyères is a small estate in the heart of the Beaujolais region just south of the cru Brouilly, farmed and run by Jean-Pierre Teissedre and his family since 1900. The quality is very high, which is understandable, since the vineyard terroir is treated with such respect. The 60 to 90 year old vines are farmed organically, and even tilled by horse. This wine is very typical of high quality Beaujolais, with juicy berry and violet flavors punctuated by subtle hints of earthiness. Total production is less than 4000 cases. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestions: A perfect picnic wine, with various cold cuts and salads. This wine is best chilled for a few minutes or served at cellar temperature, 55º-65º F.
