External Reviews for Jean-Paul Brun Côte de Brouilly Terres Dorées
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.
Vivid ruby. Spicy redcurrant, raspberry, anise and minerals on the fragrant nose. Lively, precise and juicy in the mouth, with nicely focused flavors of red fruits, spicecake and rose. Picks up weight and sweetness with air while maintaining its vivacity. Finishes with silky tannins and excellent clarity, the red fruit and spice notes repeating.
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.
Reductive sage and smoked meat notes in the nose of the Terres Dorees 2011 Cote de Brouilly back-off with airing to reveal more predictable wisteria, blueberry and elderberry that cavort on a polished, juicy, airy and open palate, mingling with smoky black tea, crushed stone, and a twist of black pepper that helps prolong an invigorating finish. Expect to relish this through 2017.
Bright ruby-red. Pungent red fruits and potpourri on the highly perfumed nose. Lithe and precise on the palate, offering pure strawberry and raspberry flavors complicated by notes of white pepper and candied violet. Closes with impressive energy, length and lingering florality.
In the world of tooty fruity bubble gum Beaujolais, Jean-Paul Brun is a non-conformist. His Rosé de Saignée is made from 100% Gamay, and gives off essense of red currants and spice.
Like Brunandrsquo;s other crus only three weeks in bottle when I tasted it, his 2010 Cote de Brouilly andmdash; around a third of which did time in his sole foudre and in older barriques andmdash; led with a provocatively pungent nose of smoky black tea, horseradish, quarry dust, and just-ripe blueberry and red raspberry. Bright and invigorating, it gushes with tart-edged fruit while delivering more than enough complexity to elicit head-scratching between sips. Sustained and saliva-inducing in its finishing flavors, it should remain a delight for at least the next several years. Brun seeks to assure me that a richer dimension will emerge once this has had a bit more time to rest post-bottling.
