Bright garnet, aromas of cherry juju's and strawberries, flavor profile matches without length, but with good acid.

91 Points "The Brun 2009 Cote de Brouilly allies lushness of texture to liveliness, lift, and refreshment, and ripeness of blackberry and mulberry with a stone-licking undertone as well as invigorating piquancy and tartness that remind me of chomping down on the berry seeds. Notes of black tea, sage, and mineral salts add further complexity. The 2008 version of this wine, incidentally, turned out better than it had appeared to me (right after bottling) when I tasted it for issue 184, but this 2009 is in another, glorious class, making it a superb value! Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years." Wine Advocate, #190 Aug 2010, David Schildknecht

Vivid purple. Wild strawberry and raspberry aromas are complemented by notes of cinnamon, anise and dried rose. Juicy, penetrating red fruit flavors show a refreshing bitterness and turn spicier with air. Suave and precise Fleurie with excellent finishing clarity and tangy persistence.

A beautifully, dusty-mineraled Cru Gamay with vibrant acidity and subtle fruit. Still light and refreshing with rustic aspects and length on the end. A wine to be enjoyed now or held for years.

Jean-Paul Brun refuses to use laboratory yeasts or add sugar to his wines - two practices that are very common in Beaujolais. His wines turn out light-bodied, juicy, and eminently quaffable: this one is brimming with red fruit.

Brunrsquo;s 2009 Fleurie mdash; based on purchased fruit mdash; displays remarkable depth and intrigue of mineral and animal nuances to accompany its pristine evocation of diverse, ripe black fruits. Roasted meats, smoked meats, marrow, stone, and mineral salts; black tea and peat make for riveting complexity in a wine that is dense yet buoyant, richly-fruited yet vivacious, and positively vibratory in finish. This stupendous value should hold up well for at least 5ndash;6 years mdash; not that one would want to miss out on it in its glorious youth.
