External Reviews for Jean-Paul Brun Cote de Brouilly Terres Dorees
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.
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.
