Jean-Paul Brun's Fleurie is certainly one of the best wines in the appellation and is terrific in 2010. From a semi-circle vineyard in the lieu-dit Grille-Midi, with southern exposure. The soil is very poor sandy granite always giving very low yields. An intense and superb wine in 2010, built to last, great balance of firm acidity and dense material, red and black fruits. This needs time but will be excellent — highly recommended for those who will cellar it 3 to 5 years before drinking. Best in 2020? Re-tasted 03/16/2013: Really one of the best 2010 Beaujolais with lovely red/black color, deep cherry/strawberry, violet and dark chocolate aromas. The palate is ripe but well structured, really balanced and finishes with juicy acids. Delicious now but best 2016 — 2022.
