Moulin-À-Vent Terres Dorée Jean-Paul Brun 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

“The Brun 2008 Moulin-a-Vent (from two parcels, one toward Chenas, and one toward Fleurie) is vividly redolent of ripe purple plums tinged with the bitterness of their pits and with salt. Wet stone and beef marrow undertones typical of the appellation lead to a strikingly long and invigorating finish informed by fruit skins, pits, mineral salts, and marrow. This handsomely lean cru should be worth following for 4-5 years…91” WA 8/09

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.
