Gorgeous, fresh and vivid wine. JP Brun is a consistent, natural winemaker that only produces wines that reflect the earth in which they are grown. Bright violet in the glass the wine offers instant aromas of raspberry, strawberry, rosemary, orange rind and cardomon pods. Red and blue berries, dusty earth, white pepper and clove are found on the palate. Light, soft tannins, juicy, refreshing acidity wrap this wine into a med minus body with med length. Choucouterie and pickled veg are the match, or smoked ham sammies. Drink till 2014. Tasted Aug '12
Nice earthy wine that opened up after decanting a bit. However, it was quite challenging to reconcile the demands of chilling Beaujolais to 13 degrees and decanting enough without losing this optimal temperature. Very happy with the result though... Tasted July 2013.
