This is a special cuvée from the hero of the limestone-based soils of the southern Beaujolais, Jean-Paul Brun. His wines are excellent, and also very fairly priced (this was retail €15 in Paris). His Beaujolais Blanc wines are really good: they’re not showy, but refined and mineral. I really like this wine, although the internets aren’t helping me much find out what the difference is between this Vinification Bourguignonne and the regular blanc cuvée.
Jean-Paul Brun Terres Dorées Beaujolais Blanc Vinification Bourguignonne Chardonnay 2014 Beaujolais, France
12.5% alcohol. Subtly honeyed, slightly creamy, lemony fruit with a lovely mineral core to it. There’s a real completeness to this wine: stony with pear, lemons and nice precision allied to some richer notes. Lovely pear and citrus fruit with a subtle almond nuttiness. 92/100
