Rated as one of the ‘four star’ producers in Beaujolais by Robert Parker, Jean Paul Brun aims to produce old fashioned Gamay. Using indigenous yeasts and traditional winemaking techniques from Burgundy, his artisanal wines have structure and character.
Sourced from a small vineyard named Javernières within the hill of Côte du Py, which is known by the locals for producing the finest Morgon. Concentrated nose of ripe dark berry with notes of stone fruit and earthiness. Medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a good length.
The Morgon Côte dy Py Javenieres is showing very well with another year in bottle, revealing a youthful but expressive bouquet of ripe cherries, plums, warm spices, licorice and dark chocolate. On the palate it's full-bodied, rich and layered with ripe acids, an ample chassis of fine but firm tannins, and a long finish.- 93 pts Willaim Kelley, Wine Advocate
