WTN: 2006 Jean-Paul Brun Moulin a Vent Terres Dorees

Postby JC (NC) » Thu Jun 18, 2009 1:26 pm

Louis/Dressner Selection
12% alcholol
Rather opaque, dense, dark purple color.
Juicy first impression of rather primary fruit with purple grape notes, and some pine needle layering in. Some Burgundian tendencies which possibly could be enhanced by cellaring for a couple more years. Seems to be a match for roast poultry or other fowl or some pork dishes with fruit sauce. I paired it with baked chicken thighs with broccoli, cheese and bread crumbs over rice. Enjoyed it just as much or even more the second night.
Attempted translation from the bottle: This wine of the terroir has been fermented naturally with the yeast present on the skin of the grape [indigenous yeast]. A light deposit may form in the bottle. (Slight sediment in final glass.)
So successful as a summer wine that I am going to try to order three more bottles and also put a Cote de Brouilly in my line-up.

I don't know this one (though Brun is a producer whom I respect), but some MàV is capable of serious ageing in such a way as to become quite Burgundian and suitable for autumnal dishes (e;g. game) as well as those of summer.

Brun is a name to reckon with by all accounts. Pity not available here in AB-land.
I used to be a MaV drinker but seemed to have moved on? Do have `05 Drouhin still somewhere.
