After tasting his “regular” Fleurie from very nearby vines — not to mention in light of previous experiences with this cuvee — I was anticipating something special from Brun’s 2011 Fleurie Grille-Midi, and I was not disappointed. Here we have a sweeter yet almost equally bright impression of mingled black and red berries than in that corresponding bottling, and the pervasive smokiness shades from black tea toward peat. This wine’s sense of density and grip point toward abundant tannins more than does its texture, which is in fact quite refined. The mouthwatering interaction of fruit with mineral that constitutes this Fleurie’s finish is less audacious and yet more nuanced than in its generic counterpart, and will keep you happily occupied for minutes just as bottles no doubt will through at least 2018.

Deep ruby. Captivating aromas of ripe red fruits, smoky minerals and earth, along with a sexy floral note. Suave and silky on entry, then fleshy and sweet in the mid-palate, with bright minerality sharpening the red fruit preserve and rose pastille flavors. Shows impressive power on the strikingly persistent finish, which features fine-grained tannins and deep red berry character.
