Thierry Ledain “Impatience” 2018 - Côtes de Brouilly
At the top of Mont Brouilly, true emblem of the appellation, Côtes de Brouilly covers 4 communes only: Saint-Lager, Odenas, Quincié-en-Beaujolais, Cercié. The wines produced are generous, with fine tannins; the aromas are reminiscent of pepper, small macerated black fruits with mineral notes.
Created in 2007, at a time when many winemakers in the Beaujolais were abandoning the hillsides or thinking of stopping, Domaine de Rochefolle was built up piece by piece, plot by plot by its current owner, Thierry Ledain. Started with barely 7 hectares, the property now extends over 55 hectares, with a diversity of terroirs skilfully elaborated. Thierry Ledain's exploitation is certified HVE (High Environmental Value) since 2018.
