This cuvee is produced from 70 yo vines in schist and granite derived soil with blue diorite, on a south-facing site very close to Château Thivin.
Named after Daniel's daughter, the Cuvee Melanie is generously concentrated and offers the most power out of the cuvees. Medium-full bodied, there is an enjoyable ripeness to the wine, and opens with aromas of blueberry preserve and sweet spices.

"Daniel Bouland’s Cuvée Mélanie bottling of Côte de Brouilly is an old vine cuvée, as all of these vines are more than seventy years-old. The 2022 iteration is simply a brilliant young wine, offering up a deep, pure and sappy bouquet of black cherries, pomegranate, a touch of smoked meats, dark soil tones, just a hint of fresh thyme, sweet stem tones that add a lovely undertow of savoriness, roses and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, vibrant and complex, with a beautiful core of fruit, lovely soil inflection, ripe, buried tannins, tangy acids and excellent 70 focus and balance on the long and utterly complete finish. This is eminently drinkable in its youthful charm, but has the underlying chassis of suave tannins to age long and gracefully and will be a far more impressive drink five to ten years down the road. 2023-2060." 94 points - John Gilman, View From The Cellar
