- Jean Paul Brun Beaujolais Vielles Vignes L'Ancien 2013 Product #29202 (In Stock)
Jean-Paul Brun is one of Beaujolais elite producers, tending his vineyards naturally (and insanely low yields) and making Gamay wine as if it were fine Burgundy. This cuvee from 40-50 year-old vines is breathtaking, with layers of blueberry, blackberry, fresh fig, warm stone, and meadow flower aromas and flavors. Ripe and richly textured, but with plenty of cut and a brisk, clean, finish. Roast a chicken and drink this. Life will be good.
- Terres Dorees (JP Brun) Beaujolais Blanc 2013 Product #29586 (In Stock)
The benchmark white Beaujolais is very Burgundy-like in 2013, with a rich Chardonnay texture that just gets better and more luxurious with air.
"Vibrant citrus fruit and melon aromas are sharpened by a hint of quinine and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Round and seamless on the palate, offering pliant honeydew and nectarine flavors and a refreshingly bitter lemon pith quality that comes up slowly. Clings with good intensity on the finish, leaving a note of sweet butter behind." Vinous 88 points
