The History

Jean-Paul Brun started Terres Dorées in 1979 in the southern Beaujolais. He is a winemaker whose sole preoccupation is displaying the true terroir of his vineyards in his wines. He is uninterested in trends and eschews modern conveniences. Terres Dorées was begun by Jean-Paul Brun in 1979. Jean-Paul began with 4 hectares of vineyards in Charnay in the southern Beaujolais - an area that is slightly warmer and more limestone-driven than the granite rich villages in the northern Beaujolais. Today the Charnay estate has grown to 30 acres and Jean-Paul has added 15 hectares farmed in northern Crus.

The Philosophy

Jean-Paul believes that the widely used carbonic maceration technique of modern Beaujolais convolutes and masks the true terroir of Beaujolais and instead opts for a more Burgundian approach for fermentation beginning with hand sorting of fruit, destemming and longer and slower ferments using only indigenous yeasts.
