Jean-Paul Brun Terres Dorées Beaujolais Blanc 2012

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceGamay accounts for 99 percent of the grapes grown in Beaujolais, so this Beaujolais Blanc (100 percent chardonnay) is a rare treat and a fantastic value. The warmer climate allows for a richer, fuller wine while the limestone soil adds a fresh, mineral-laden element. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks that are laid on their side to allow for more lees contact, amping the complexity further. The resulting wine (bottled without any oak) is brimming with apple, pear, citrus, creamy lees and bright, saline minerality. Fine depth and length.Tasted: 16 December 2014Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
