"Attractive" - Wine Enthusiast | 100% Gamay

“Based in the cru villages of Chénas, Pierre-André Dumas also has vines in Brouilly. This is a soft fruity wine with attractive red cherry flavors and a minimum of tannins. It is fresh and light, ready to drink now for its fruitiness, although ready to age at least until 2019,” writes the Wine Enthusiast, giving this organically grown and produced red 89 points—rare praise indeed for a Cru Beaujolais.

Dumas is a family owned estate committed to tradition but not tied down by it. By farming its vineyards in Chenas and Brouilly according to organic methods and by harvesting all of its estate-grown fruit by hand, the wines here are among the best of Beaujolais. For those who have yet to drink an authentically made Cru Beaujolais—Dumas’ 2013 Brouilly is an awesome introduction to beautiful and underappreciated Gamay. Free Shipping on 6+ bottles.


Four reasons we love it:

  • Pierre-André is the son and grandson of winemakers at this family-owned estate in the heart of Beaujolais. At Domaine Dumas, he works alongside wife Céline, making wine as his ancestors did, modernizing techniques over time and elevating the quality in each and every bottle.
  • Domaine Dumas’ subterranean cellar houses a number of vintage oak casks—some as old as 100 years—which are still used today in the aging of his wines.
  • The Domaine owns 18 hectares, almost all of which are planted to grapevines, situated in Pierreux—means stony—the heart of Beaujolais. In fact, the region is known for its granite soils rich in sandy, volcanic schist.
  • Brouilly is the largest Cru in Beaujolais. Its wines are defined by fresh aromas of just-picked berries and bright floral notes.

A deep red garnet hue. An attractive nose of red and soft black fruit with a hint of pepper. An opulent and tannic mouth-feel reveals cherries and spicy flavors with a whisper of minerals.

At our family estate, we cultivate almost 17 hectares of vines in the heart of Beaujolais. Son and grandson of winemakers for many generations, PierreAndré together with his wife Céline, took over the family vineyard in 1999 from his father Michel, who created the vineyard in 1958 and with whom he worked the land for over ten years.

The terroir, often forgotten, then became a priority in the making of the wines. Céline and Pierre-André decided to create a new image for the Estate that reflects both the modern aspect together with full respect for tradition and terroir, this element so well founded in the Beaujolais wines

This wine pairs well with veal, pork, BBQs, and lasagna.

Wine Reviews

This tasty bottle of Brouilly is loaded with fresh red fruit, black pepper and bramble, a classic example of this Beaujolais Cru.  Unique in every way, Gamay is a great summer red that will also fill your needs at the dinner table.  Black tea, graphite and tobacco join the fresh fruit on the palate, finishing light and smooth.  Enjoy now through 2020. - DZ Aug 2017
