The aromas of black fruit are full and generous. The flavour, both concentrated and dense, lingers on the palate. Great potential!

Description

The vineyard  of Juliénas is spread over 580 hectares, across the villages of Juliénas, Jullié, et Pruzilly. AOC since 1938, Juliénas is one of the ten crus of Beaujolais. From the combination of its unique grape and its famous terroirs, is born a red wine, suitable for ageing (ten years on average and sometimes more for some wines).

The name Juliénas is said to comes from JULIUS CAESAR.

Our Vineyard

The structure of the subsoil gives a natural tannic power to the wines of the appellation that must be mastered to develop quality wines.

Grape Variety : Black Gamay

Soil and Subsoil : Diversified granitic soil and subsoil on blue stones altered at shallow depth

Surface : Ha05

Exposure : Eastern

Plantation : 1980 : 27Sq m45 – 1992 : 22Sq m55 –  1994 :5Sq m – 2011 :50 Sq m

Harvest and winemaking

The grapes were manually harvested in 15 kilos open boxes on September 8th, 2018.

The vendange was wonderful and the wine-making processes happened in optimal conditions.

The wines were casked at the beginning of October and matured in barrels for 9 months. They were then assembled to be bottled in July.

The 2018 vintage expresses perfectly the style of the Gamay grape variety. The ageing in oak barrel has brought a complexity that makes it a subtle wine: Gourmand, fruity and accessible qualify it perfectly.
