At the far south western tip of the Bas Beaujolais equidistant from Lyon and Roanne (home to Troisgros) a fine country house in an elegant park is the setting for the equally stylish cooking of the aptly named Jean Brouilly, who is something of an oenophile. I have enjoyed fine classical cooking here especially the grilled mullet with potato galette and the chocolate soufflé flavoured with ginger. An exceptional wine list.
