Jean-Paul Brun makes wine that offers more than run-of-the-mill Beaujolais and his Côte de Brouilly, 2011 is certainly no exception. He has resisted the current orthodoxy and the wine bureaucrats in the region, of whom he has often fallen foul, to produce wines with greater depth and flavour and which endure somewhat longer. This Côte de Brouilly being a case in point. It is fermented using wild yeasts and, at 12.5% abv, is lower in alcohol than most wines from the appellation. With cherry and raspberry on both nose and palate this is a svelte wine with remarkable purity of style.


As Mark Savage, MW, says:

This small, but very dynamic grower’s star has been one of the relatively few bright lights in the Beaujolais firmament during the past two decades, for he set himself standards far above those which had been allowed to prevail in the wake of the craze for Beaujolais Nouveau and which contributed to a decline in quality, reputation and popularity for this region.

No other region in the world seems to be bothered to try and excel with the gamay grape, and yet a good gamay wine is in my view a much better bet than an ordinary and more expensive pinot noir. I hope that Jean-Paul’s wines will show why we think so. His rather restless, inquisitive, demanding nature has made him a maverick thorn in the flesh of the ‘gratte-papiers’ at the Institut National d’Appellation Controlée and their subsidiary fraud squad by whom he is regularly persecuted on the grounds of making wine that is ‘atypique’ for the region. It is of course precisely because his wines are so much better than what has become typical that we admire them so much and have bought them with such enthusiasm for nearly twenty vintages.
