Wine Search

Domaine du Riaz 2015


A fine Cote de Brouilly, with a shining purple color and a mineral nose, on which are found hints of spice, fruity notes and a subtle touch of leather. Structured and balanced, this wine has a fresh mouthfeel, with a persistent finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from a small plot of only 3 hectares (7.4 acres) of traditional Gobelet-trellised southeast-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.

Interesting Facts
The land has long been farmed by the Brac de la Pierre family, who has worked with Les Vins Georges Duboeuf for many years.
