2017 Domaine des Terres Dorées Beaujolais Cuvée l'Ancien
Region: France, Beaujolais
Grape Variety: Gamay
Dry medium-bodied red; sleek fruit | Isaan-style larb (great with spice!)
Jean-Paul Brun’s wines often reflect the landscape: fruity but not facile with just the right amount of sunshine and cheer, and quite often a cool, dark edge on the mid-palate and finish. This Gamay reminds us of a cranberry tart on the nose, but also with some earthy, mushroom notes.
The l’Ancien does not undergo any carbonic maceration, which explains why it has a more intense body and acidity. Heavier than usual for a Gamay, we strongly recommend pushing the boat out and pairing this with spice.
