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

The region of Burgundy has become synonymous with high quality red wines, but in actual fact the region consistently produces a wide variety of fine wines of many different styles, rigorously protected by French wine laws designed to keep reputations and quality at a very high level. The region benefits greatly from a warm and sunny summer climate, which, coupled with the excellent quality soils which typify the region, and centuries of experience and expertise, has led to the region being known all over the world for the excellence of its produce. The majority of grapevines grown here are of the Pinot Noir varietal, which has helped Burgundy become known as the definitive region for elegant and smooth red wines, but Chardonnay grapes and many others are also grown in abundance and used to make both still and sparkling wines.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
