Sometimes it's good to get something you know. That goes for everything in life; wine is not different. With so many choices around, especially with white wine, you can easily get distracted and go looking for a wine for ages. That can be fun of course but there are plenty of times when you just want to get a good wine and get out of the Vinmonopol. This week's wine is one of our safe choices.
Jean-Paul Brun is a favourite of ours and has been for many years now. He was the subject of one of our first stories and it was a particularly fun story to shoot as you can see here:
He makes wine in the Beaujolaise area, most famous for its “New wine”, that arrives in november, but the other wines from this area are so much better. This week's wine is a chardonnay. Beaujolaise is a part of Burgundy so the wines here are similar to the wines you fine there but the price is much, much better.
Brun Beaujolais Chardonnay Classic 2021 - 229,90 kr
A lively and fresh Chardonnay from the "Golden Stones" in the south of Beaujolais. Very attractive aromas of candied citrus and pineapple with a hint of melted butter are married to a creamy and rather generous palate. It is dry with lovely intense ripe fruit and citrus flavours — pure, juicy and succulent with a very long and excellent finish.The lively acidity and fine tannins lift the finish very nicely. It offers richness combined with a degree of focus and energy normally reserved for the much more famous Chardonnays found further north.
