2014 Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) Fleurie "Grille Midi"

SKU #1274418 93 points Vinous

 Deep magenta. Sexy, high-pitched red berry and floral scents are complemented by suggestions of Asian spices and incense. Sweet and penetrating, offering palate-staining raspberry liqueur and lavender pastille flavors give spine and lift by juicy acidity. In a seamless style, with a suave blend of power and finesse. Finishes sappy, sweet and very long, with no rough edges and an emphatic echo of florality. (JR)  (8/2016)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Fleurie Grille Midi has a very composed bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry, crushed rose petal and warm brick aromas that are very well defined and seem to gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red fruit, a keen line of acidity, nicely poised with a crisp and quite sustained finish that fans out wonderfully. Always one of the best Fleuries around, this 2014 is no different and it will give immense pleasure over several years. (NM)  (8/2016)

Additional Information:



- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
