Manual harvest. Selection of the best grapes on a vibrating sorting table. Then vatting of the entire bunches for a typical Beaujolais semi-carbonic maceration which lasts 10 to 12 days. Aging lasts 3 to 4 months on fine lees in old oak casks to enhance micro-oxygenation. In the end, a light filtration is carried out to remove the largest particles. Estate bottled.

vinous logo"Bright violet color. High-pitched, mineral-tinged aromas of black raspberry and candied lavender. Spicy and precise in the mouth, offering zesty red and dark berry flavors that flesh out slowly on the back half. Shows very good focus and energy, with the mineral nuance gaining strength on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a touch of peppery spices. - Josh Raynolds"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"The sector known as Combiaty lies in the southern part of the Brouilly appellation. This wine made from 50-year-old vines is soft and ripe in the classic style of Brouilly. Crisp acidity gives a red-cherry-flavored lift. Drink this wine now. - Roger Voss"

vinous logo"Limpid ruby. Fresh red and dark berry aromas, along with suggestions of musky earth and dried flowers. Fleshy and broad on entry and then tighter in the middle, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors sharpened by a peppery nuance. Fine-grained tannins shape the finish, which hangs on with good, spicy tenacity. - Josh Raynolds"
