Henry Fessy 2015 Brouilly (£12.99 Ocado, Waitrose)

Living France - - Ala Maison -

Brouilly is the largest of the in­di­vid­ual vil­lages in Beau­jo­lais, and shows a more se­ri­ous side of the Ga­may grape. This one has a savoury spice el­e­ment that sug­gests some oak mat­u­ra­tion, and it works re­ally well along­side the suc­cu­lent, juicy black fruit on the palate. Rea­son­ably firm tan­nin means that this wine is less suited to chill­ing, but could well im­prove in the bot­tle over the next five years.
