Winemaker Patrick Brunet’ tiny Domaine Robert estate consists of 50-60 year old vines, deeply rooted in the granitic soils of Fleurie. The original family estate consisted of these two hectares of weathered schist in “Javernières” on the Côte du Py, an incredible site, if not one of the absolute best in the region.
Brunet organically tends 7 HA in Fleurie and Morgon in southern Burgundy. Ancient vines of Gamay rooted in a granitic sand provide for wild aromatics and intense fruit in the finished wine. On the palate, the wine is layered and complex with a core of black and red berry flavors. The Morgon Cote du Py is lively with great character. It’s a total steal for the price.
If you like to drink juicy, dark Pinot with a mineral streak, you owe it to yourself to pick up some Beaujolais from a real producer.
It is the perfect wine for that roasted chicken comfort dinner that I feel like cooking almost every night these days.
