Natalie's Score: 89/100

Juicy and generous with fleshy cherries and field raspberries. Just enough bite to make this wine refreshing and food friendly. Lovely balance, smooth texture and medium-bodied weight.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Jean Paul Brun Côte De Brouilly is FRUITY to integrated, light bodied wine, with nice aromas of yogurty strawberry, prune and caramel. It has subtle tannins (decant for 15 min) and the finish is medium and a bit hot. It is good to drink now and should be for the next 1-2 years (not to be aged). My impression: NICE, 88 pts - it is quite impressive that the LCBO is able to charge $19 for Beaujolais, no matter how nice.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
