Jean-Paul Brun Terres Dorees Fleurie Grille Midi 2014

External Review:

Brilliant ruby. A perfumed, complex bouquet displays intense dark berry compote, cherry pit and spicecake aromas, along with notes of anise and dried violet. Chewy and spicy on the palate, offering sweet blackberry and floral pastille flavors underscored by smoky minerals. Dusty tannins build slowly through the finish, which shows excellent clarity and power, leaving sappy dark fruit and allspice notes behind.

The 2013 Fleurie Grille-Midi comes from the warmest part of the parcels from vines over 60 years of age on shallow soils. It has a complex bouquet with broody dark cherry, red plum and undergrowth scents that burst forth with just a few swirls of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit with a saline tincture. This is very well poised with a dash of white pepper sprinkled over the tannic finish. More masculine than Jean-Paul Brun’s Fleurie, this will give a decade of pleasure.

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.

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.
