External Reviews for Jean-Paul Brun Cote de Brouilly Terres Dorees
Vivid red. Sexy aromas of strawberry, raspberry and Asian spices, with a suave floral topnote. Taut red berry flavors flesh out with air and pick up a deeper, darker cherry quality, with zesty acidity adding lift. Shows very good clarity on the long, incisive finish, with fresh red fruit and spice notes repeating.
The 2012 Cote de Brouilly Terres Dorees comes from 45-year-old vines and is raised in cement foudres. It has a lively and energetic nose that actually puts the 2012 Fleurie in its place: ripe red cherries and raspberry fruit that are brisk and lively. The palate is well-balanced with supple tannins. There is impressive weight and concentration here for a 2012, and it comes adorned with a fine, cedar-infused finish. Drink 2016–2026.
