Jean-Paul Brun planted Roussanne vines in 2000 on the clay-limestone soils typical of his home village of Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. The grapes are farmed organically and harvested by hand. The whole clusters are pressed and fermented in a cement tank with a pied de cuve (the winemaking version of a sourdough starter) and fruit from the vineyard. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged on lees in the tank with regular bâtonnage.

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.”
