Jean-Paul Brun Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais BlancRegular price $21.99
Jean-Paul Brun started Terres Dorées in 1979 with a mere 4 hectares of vines in Charnay in the southern Beaujolais, an area which is slightly warmer and more limestone-driven versus the more renowned granite-rich cru villages in the northern Beaujolais.
From the beginning, Jean-Paul carved a different path for himself in Beaujolais. Not only does he not chaptalize (common practice here), he has also always eschewed the relatively modern technique of carbonic maceration, in favor of traditional Burgundian vinification. His feeling was and remains that the character of Gamay and its varied terroirs is obscured by whole-cluster fermentation, as well as by the use of commercial yeasts and copious sulfur.
Jean-Paul's Beaujolais Blanc is 100% Chardonnay, and it is consistently a top value. 'The 2022 Beaujolais Blanc Classic has an attractive bouquet with pear and peach skin scents, and just a hint of nectarine. The palate is well-balanced with fine acidity, fresh and lively with lovely Anjou pear, melon and nectarine notes on the finely-proportioned finish. Delicious!' - Vinous Media - 90 points
