Beaujolais is the wayward cousin of Burgundy (depending on which winemaker you talk to and where they are based in Burgundy). This Bourgogne is fruit from Charnay grown in the southern Beaujolais. As with all Terres Dorées reds, the vinification is traditional Burgundian. The grapes are rigorously sorted, destemmed, crushed, and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats. Natural fermentation and maceration last approximately three weeks, and ageing is also in concrete.

Jean-Paul Brun

Jean-Paul practices organic winemaking and has no time for winemakers who jump on “cool” bandwagons without actually putting the work in on the vineyard. To him there are two types of wine; industrial and artisanal. Artisanal wines are those “where you can taste and feel the vigneron’s sensibilities.” He gets particularly annoyed by those who claim to be natural winemakers or sulphur free but that in reality end up using chemicals when they realise their wine is not good to begin with. He feels this discredits the natural winemaking movement. For him, natural winemaking is about being an honest winemaker. His reason for working like this? “I work this way because of a personal choice, out of respect to the planet and the people that drink our wines. The quality in my grapes was already there but now we work in a way that respects nature and we know it’s important for the future so it just feels like the right thing to do.”
