Beaujolais l’Ancien ‘Le Buissy’ is a remarkable wine made from a small parcel of Jean Pauls oldest (65 years) vines. It is made using more traditional Burgundian techniques and benefits from a few years in bottle where it takes on a more Pinot Noir rather than Gamay flavour. Aged in both wood and cement the wines has amazing structure and beautifully complex red fruit flavours.

Jean-Paul is a very traditional winemaker who makes food-friendly wines of serious note at Domaine Terres Dorees. There is great complexity and concentration, along with the juicy fruit associated with Beaujolais, in his wines. He achieves this with minimum intervention and steers clear of manipulating the wines via carbon maceration, thermo-vinification and yeast inoculation which have become the norm in Beaujolais. He also believes his wines taste better at lower alcohol levels so does not add extra sugar (chapitalise) to raise alcohol levels.
