Mommessin – Brouilly

    Shiny red ruby in colour with a beautiful nose of cherry and raspberry, combining with notes of minerality. The bouquet mirrors the full bodied palate of red berried fruits.

    OWNER

    Since 1865 the vineyard has been owned and managed by the house of Mommessin stamped by a dual lineage : the alliance of the typically Burgundian quest for excellence and the search for bursting flavours that are expected of a Beaujolais winemaker.

    WINE MAKER
