Winemaker Notes

This wine is produced from our oldest vines, which have fewer, smaller grapes with a more concentrated flavor. We are able to harvest the grapes later because there is far less risk of rot, owing to the small bunches. The grapes are very ripe and have a high natural sugar level. The wine is vinified in traditional Burgundy methods. Ancien is a deeply colored wine with a bouquet of red fruit and very soft tannins. It can be drunk relatively young but is probably best at 2 to 3 years old. This is a wine well balanced with natural sugar and acidity.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The latest vintage of Terres Doree’s flagship, 2007 L’Ancien Vieilles Vignes may or may not be labeled “Beaujolais” as well, depending on when you buy it. Due to the volume produced and the regulations of the French quality “watchdogs” three sets of samples of the same wine had to be submitted to the committee of growers who authorize the appellation controllee. The first submission was approved, but the subsequent submissions of exactly the same wine weren’t just refused, they were repeatedly reported to be full of off-aromas. Truth be told, Brun’s conception of “ancient method” Beaujolais is simply not widely shared by the down-trodden majority of Beaujolais growers, and thus he joins the lengthening line of refusnik vignerons who can wear that status as an honor. To paraphrase Churchill: “In the morning, my wine will all be sold, but yours will still be insipid.” And how does this renegade Beaujolais actually taste? Its vivid aromas and flavors of tart fresh cherry are allied to flowers and distilled berries in the nose and a positively chewy sense of fruit skin on the palate. Salty, chalky notes add complexity to the most invigorating and indelible finish you are apt to encounter in any under-$20 red wine.

Languedoc-Roussillon

View all wine

An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality, value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Provence. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Piquepoul and Bourbelenc. International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.
