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

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
