Dussert Gerber 2015 

Here we have the motto "Respect for the wine." After my weapons on the ground, said Jean Jacques Baronnat I worked in the  cellar, 
the administrative and commercial. I select my first vintage that I put bottles in 1982 - my father was of course present at the time. 
Then for a few years, we bought together. 
Since the late 80s, I make the selection of wine which is vital to our business. It was also at this time that the wines of the Mediterranean 
coast appeared in our range. All I know in the wine, it was my father who taught me when he made me taste the wines he had chosen 
as well as the research work and assembly that we did together ". 

Excellent Bouilly 2013, a full-bodied wine with soft tannins, intense nose (blackberry, spices), full mouth, which blends notes of spice and 
raspberry. Beaujolais-Villages "Le Bois de la Fée" 2013, dominated by ripe strawberry wood and humus is quite fleshy, with a nice long 
finish. Taste the Saint Joseph in 2011, intense color with hints of black, with powerful aromas of cooked red fruits (blackberry, 
strawberry ...), with well rounded tannins but very balanced, could be served with a duck, and Crozes-Hermitage 2011, 
which develops a powerful and persistent nose of ripe currant and spices, a rich wine with velvety tannins, all in mouth, 
where the fat is associated with the structure.

23.07.09: the beginning of "veraison"
some first grains takes a pink colour ...
After three weeks of good weather, you see the first grapes gradually change color. Of course, we have to wait one month before harvest and the transformation  is still very shy but it is the beginning of veraison.
With the photos below you can see it...

the colour change

06.07.2009 : Since the flowering of the vines, we have an ideal time for the maturation. Of course, like every year we have some storms but the weather is warm without being too wet. the wet passages are followed by dry weather, which helps prevent the development of rot and vine diseases. The treatments are also more limited this year.

30.05.2009: the vine is in bloom. Since last week, the vine has flowered. Last year, the flower came around the June 18th and the flower comes with more than 2 weeks in advance. It is an ideal weather during the flowering - with the exception of a cold passage last week - and we'll probably get one harvest more homogeneous than last year. The flowering period is always important for the future harvest. We should harvest between end of August and early September.

The 2009  wine guides who wrote about Jean Baronnat wines

Wines selected

Incontestablement au sommet. Ici, on a pour devise «  Le respect du vin ». J’aime bien Jean-Jacques Baronnat qui dirige cette maison familiale de négoce, créée il y a plus de 100 ans par son grand-père, alors producteur en Beaujolais.
Remarquable Moulin à Vent 2006, de très jolie couleur grenat, charnu, au nez de fruits surmûris (framboise, cassis) et d’humus, très classique, un vin qui associe couleur et matière, d’excellente garde.
Le Fleurie 2006 est complexe et harmonieux, avec ces nuances se définissant par des arômes de framboise, de fraise des bois, un vin de couleur profonde. Excellent Brouilly 2006, corsé, un vin qui sent bon les fruits rouges mûrs et les sous-bois, de bouche savoureuse.
Goûtez aussi le Saint-Véran 2006, de belle robe pâle, avec cette touche d’acidité alliée à une rondeur agréable, où s’entremêlent des notes d’amande, de fruits mûrs et de bruyère, et le Mâcon-Villages blanc 2006, souple, tout en arômes, au nez complexe et puissant (acacia, poire), très bien équilibré, de bouche parfumée et ample.
Beau Morgon 2005, au nez de mûre et de fumé, aux tanins présents, un vin qui poursuit une très belle évolution.
Le Crémant de Bourgogne est tout en arômes, au nez intense et complexe (fleurs fraîches et musc), de mousse crémeuse.
Aucune hésitation, bien entendu.
Côte de Brouilly
Cette affaire familiale créée au début du siècle dernier est dirigée depuis 1985 par Jean-Jacques Baronnat, petit-fils du fondateur. La sélection 2006 d’un grenat assez intense s’ouvre sur des parfums de petits fruits rouges (cerise). Ces derniers accompagnent une bouche fraîche et équilibrée aux tanins qui s’arrondissent. On pourra déguster ce vin dès maintenant ou bien l’attendre encore un à deux ans.

This year: rain and low temperatures...
Since the early spring and, with the exception of the second half of March, temperatures were very low for the season. Maturation of the grapes is laborious.
Now, we are realizing some damage caused by heavy winter frosts: though in most cases the vines has not been destroyed by frost, it nevertheless suffered three weeks of severe frost of February. One obtains  grapes of all sizes, some with tiny grains.

The specialized review Gilbert et Gaillard
Beaujolais wine: to erase the crisis and to emphasize the vintages
"Take Régnié for example, a vintage born in 1988. Who knows this name today?  questions Jean-Jacques Baronnat, directing house of  Baronnat company. Before adding: If the Beaujolais wine were a bad product, we  would not sell all over the world. However, of names seem less to suffer that others, like Brouilly, Moulin à Vent, Fleurie, Morgon or saint amour."
