2022 Jean-Paul Brun 'Le Ronsay' Beaujolais

Beautiful New Beaujolais from the Master: Jean-Paul Brun 'Le Ronsay' Beaujolais

Jean-Paul Brun's Le Ronsay Beaujolais is pure joy in a glass! New to the US and to Table Wine, we featured this one for Thanksgiving, and you all loved it. Good news, we just bought a bunch more, and we're going to keep it on deal!

This is Gamay at its purest and most drinkable. Monsieur Brun is a master of the variety, and his Le Ronsay showcases his signature silkiness along with a Burgundian balance rarely found at this price point.

Offering up aromas and flavors of freshly-picked cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, this opens up to reveal more complex notes of spice and violet. If you need an easy, honest, and highly quaffable red, this is the ticket!

Over the past month, this has been one of the top-selling wines in the store, and there's a good reason for that. Far from being a simple and fruity little number, it's a stellar and complete value in artisan, hand-crafted, organic red wine from a master of his trade.

Brun knows and loves the land, the grapes, the history, and the people of Beaujolais. Jean-Paul makes some of the most composed, graceful, and balanced wines in the AOC. His Le Ronsay comes from an organic patch of 20-25-year-old vines grown near Brun's home village of Charnay, in the southern part of the appellation.

I love the style here. There's a vitality to the snappy and juicy red fruit flavors, but it's certainly not simple, like many Beaujolais' at this price range tend to be. Give it a bit of air, and it opens up to reveal more complex notes of brown spices, flowers, and forest floor. Even better, this low tannin and low octane (just 12.5% ABV) red doesn't weigh you down with oak, extract, and astringency.

If you know of a better estate-grown, organic, delicious Beaujolais in the marketplace for a better price, please do tell. This is best served with a slight chill and a big plate of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.
