The 2019 Beaujolais “l’Ancien” from Jean-Paul Brun is an excellent wine in the making, offering up a beautifully red fruity and transparent bouquet of cherries, cranberries, sweet stem tones, a superb base of soil, just a touch of thyme and a topnote of bonfire. On the palate the wine is bright, fullish and complex, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent mineral undertow, just a touch of backend tannin and a long, focused and complex finish. As is customary with top vintages of Monsieur Brun’s “l’Ancien”, the 2019 is eminently drinkable out of the blocks, but really built to age, and will be even better three to five years down the road. This is a superb vintage for this iconic bottling. 2021-2035+

Vivid ruby-red. Vibrant red fruit scents are complemented by a building floral nuance and a hint of licorice. A spicy quality carries on to the palate, which offers juicy red currant, raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Turns sweeter on a penetrating, gently tannic and persistent finish that echoes the red fruit and floral notes.
