Default TN: JP Brun Morgon

Last night Betsy made pork chops with a vinegar/cornichon/tomato/onion
sauce, with leftover happiness soup and kabocha (squash two ways!).
Not as vinegary as it sounds, a Burgundian recipe, but not something I
wanted to chance a more expensive Burg on. So went south to Beaujolais
for the 2006 JP Brun (Terres Dorees) Morgon. Light tannins, ripe red
cherry and strawberry fruit, moderate acidity. Some light herb notes
with time. A nice wine, though not particularly compelling. Which is
what I'm beginning to think is my reaction to most of the Brun crus. I
think from now on my buying of Brun will concentrate on the white and
the L'Ancien, and I'll use my Cru Beaujolais bucks for Coudert,
Descombes, Desvignes, Vissoux. Still, a perfectly pleasant wine.B

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

I know what you mean, Dale. I've only had his Fleurie (I think I have
his '05 Cotes de Brouilly in the cellar) but I wonder whether he's been
able to source really good land/vines as he's expanded into those Crus.
Time will tell, I suppose. On a related note, one of the 4 wines I
brought back from Caves Augé in Paris was the '05 G. Descombes Morgon.
I know that Dressner brings it into the US and I did try to find things
not available through normal channels, but I've never seen a bottle of
this before... The other red I brought back was a Morgon from a
producer I've never heard of before (Chamonard IIRC).

I have notes for a 2006 L'Ancien from Brun. Very light some pleasant
cherry fruit. Bit thin for my liking. Went well with roast chicken again
from notes but not remembering it well. B- Dale scale
