Terres Dorees l'Ancien Beaujolais Vieilles Vignes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is produced from Jean-Paul's oldest vines, which have fewer, smaller grapes with 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 very ripe and have a high natural sugar level. The wine is vinified in traditional Burgundy methods. Ancien is a deeply colored wine with a bouquet of red fruit and very soft tannins. It can be drunk relatively young but is probably best at 2 to 3 years old. This is a wine well balanced with natural sugar and acidity. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 92+ points by John Gilman (View From the Cellar).

Bright ruby. Raspberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of celery seed and anise. Spicy and firm on entry, then sweeter and rounder in the middle palate, offering tangy red fruit flavors and a touch of bitter herbs. Refreshingly brisk on the finish, with the cherry and herbal notes repeating.

A supple, easy-drinking red, showing lots of black currant and blackberry flavors, with accents of violet, tea leaf and tobacco. Modest finish. Drink now.
