    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is produced from Jean-Paul's oldest vines, which have fewer, smaller grapes with a more concentrated flavor. He is able to harvest the grapes later because there is far less risk of rot, owing to the small bunches. The grapes are very ripe and have a high natural sugar level. The wine is vinified in traditional Burgundy methods. Ancien is a deeply colored wine with a bouquet of red fruit and very soft tannins. It can be drunk relatively young but is probably best at 2 to 3 years old. This is a wine well balanced with natural sugar and acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Brun's 2009 Beaujolais L'Ancien Vieilles Vignes is once again a model of its appellation, with brightness and lift, tartly refreshing yet ripe cherry and blackberry fruit; and in general a character distinctive to the chalky soils of southern Beaujolais for which his domaine is named. Bittersweet inner-mouth floral perfume; high-toned almond extract and kirsch distillate; and salted, toasted nuts add delicious complexity to a wine that manages to caress as well as invigorate. Enjoy this terrific value over the next couple of years.
