Professional Wine Reviews for Bret Brothers Fleurie Les Grands Pres Gamay 2014

Rated 92 by Decanter
Vivid ruby-red. Juicy, sharply focused red berry and lavender pastille aromas show impressive vivacity and pick up a minerally nuance with air. Vivacious raspberry and blood orange flavors show excellent clarity and a light, precise touch. Strikingly pure and nervy, with firm closing bite, repeating red fruit and floral qualities and silky tannins coming in late. Quintessential Fleurie and way too easy to drink right now. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Fleurie Le Grand Pré, which comes from 50-year-old vines on granite soils, has a very terroir-driven bouquet - you can almost smell the wet granite percolating through the dark berry fruit here. The palate is well balanced with crisp tannin, a pleasant edginess here with hints of brown spice and clove infusing the red berry fruit towards the finish. This is a fascinating and complex Fleurie that should mature with style. Recommended.

Winery Bret Brothers

Region: Burgundy

In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region's warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
