Terres Dorees, By Terroir, 2009! A Foggy Day in Beaujolais, A New Fleurie...

3/01/11 -

We recently spent a morning bouncing around the Beaujolais with Jean-Paul Brun, visiting each of his Cru vineyards, from the Cote-de-Brouilly to Moulin-a-Vent. Jean-Paul has put together a superb group of parcels with a large percentage of very old vines. His Burgundian vinification produced elegant, deeply fruitied wines in 2009, with more structure and acidity than most wines in this opulent vintage. The Moulin-a-Vent and Morgon, in particular, should drink well for 10 to 15 years or more. Another shipment of these superb Cru Beaujolais has just arrived in New York. For those of you who missed them the first time around, we urge you to take advantage of this last delivery. Of special note is the fantastically delicious Cote-de-Brouilly, from one of the most interesting terroirs in the Beaujolais, which will drink beautifully over the next five years as you wait for the Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent and Fleurie. And speaking of Fleurie, we're offering a small quantity of Jean-Paul's new cuvèe, the Grille Midi Vieilles Vignes, for April arrival.
