Côte de Brouilly lies on the side of a hill whileits neighbor,Brouilly,lies at the bottom. Côte de Brouilly tends to ripen better, and it produces a more structured, elegant wine. Meanwhile Brouilly produces a lighter, more feminine style.And with particularly fine terroir, Fleuriemakes wines characterized by a distinct floral note and its name recalls it in French. Chénasproduces tender wines that can age surprisingly well and Chiroubles has a unique position within Crus, lying at the very highest altitudes, the grapes take about a week longer to ripen than elsewhere. Hence the wines show complexity even when young. Morgon has a firm minerality, thanks to its granitic soils, and a fruit profile that shades towards orange.
