Laurent Martray is the fourth generation to run this 19ha estate which has some of the oldest vines in the region. It has inviting violet and red cherry fruit, fine tannins, depth and precision. A touch of farmyard funk adds complexity. Rating: 91 Christelle Guibert, Decanter (Apr 2017)

Vibrantly youthful in colour and bright, sweet red cherry aromatic come-hither scents, this exuberantly cherryish Gamay from the hills of Brouilly, is refreshingly juicy with an attractively earthy beetrooty underlay and a mouthwatering acidity that makes it ideal for grilled sausages, hamburgers and black pudding. Rating: 89 (Mar 2017)

Domaine Laurent Martray

It is a great relief when you eventually track down the bubbly and charming Laurent Martray at his home down a muddy track just over the crest of the hill of Combillaty. He only produces from 9 hectares of vines, half of which he owns, and half he has been renting and working as his own for more than 12 years. They are all in the top Brouilly terroir of Combillaty. He normally produces about 700 cases in total. The Vieilles Vignes is aged in large oak 'foudres'. The combination of old vines and great winemaking makes Laurent Martray less vintage dependent than many Beaujolais producers. His wines have a fabulous depth of fruit with unusual purity and elegance - very impressive stuff.
