Jean-Paul Brun Terre Dorees FRV 100 NV

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceFRV100 = F R V Cent = Effervescent. Classic Jean-Paul Brun, and his wry, smart take on the wines of his Beaujolais homeland. Brun is the elder statesman of Beaujolais non-interventionist winemaking, and Terres Dorées is his realm of the golden (clay-limestone) slopes in the south of Bojo, where he is based. It is gamay, left deliberately sweet, and flush with sugared strawberry, pear gummies, candy apples. Acidity holds bright and riveting. Brun was the first to do a pét-nat in Bojo, 15 years ago. Back then, it was 65 g/l RS and has dropped to 35 g/l over the years—a lovely 7.5% pink fizz, ready for brunch, or light fruit desserts.Tasted: 24 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.00 private wine shops Producer: Jean-Paul BrunDistributors: Sedimentary Wines
