Terres Dorees Beaujolais l'Ancien Vieilles Vignes Jean-Paul Brun 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from Jean-Paul’s oldest vines, which have fewer berries, smaller grapes, a tighter bunch, and a more concentrated flavor. He is able to harvest the grapes later because there is far less risk of rot, owing to the small bunches. The grapes are harvested late with a high natural sugar level. The wine is vinified using traditional Burgundy techniques.The 2012 Domaine de Terres Dorees Beaujolais L'Ancien Vieilles Vignes is exemplary, offering up a deep and classic nose of cherries, cranberries, a lovely and stylish base of soil and a topnote of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is rich and intensely flavored, with fine focus and balance, tangy acids and silky tannins on the long and pure finish. "Once again a model of its appellation..."-Edited from Robert Parker Wine Advocate
