100% Roussanne. This is a little known outlier of sorts among Jean-Paul Brun's many wines. His Terres Dorées estate is in the rolling hills of Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. Here, besides of course a majority of Gamay, there is Chardonnay going back to 1983 and Pinot Noir going back to 1991...and Roussanne planted in 2000. Jean Paul figured that with the limestone influence and the latitude identical to Chignin-Bergeron in the Savoie where Roussanne is a specialty that the variety might do well; he got cuttings from esteemed growers André and Michel Quénard. Like the rest of his vineyards, this small plot is farmed organically and harvested by hand. The wine is vinified just like the Terres Dorées Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay: the bunches are destemmed and fermented with native yeasts and without sulfur in concrete vats. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally and the lees are stirred periodically. The wine is aged in steel and concrete and bottled in the spring after harvest with a light, non-sterile filtration and minimal sulfur.
