Origin: The plots are located in the village of Juliénas. Between the Estate and the village itself, with an area of 1.6 hectares.
Grape varieties: White-juiced Gamay noir
Soil: Bed of “Blue Stone” and ancient alluviums.
Vinification: The wine comes exclusively from this plot. Traditional Beaujolais vinification in gridded cement vats for 8–12 days, whole bunches with temperature control. Estate bottled in February / March, just 900 bottles for the whole output for the moment, as one plot is being replanted.
Tasting: Garnet colour with scents of violet and a red fruit aroma. On the palate, a tasty balance, the terroir of the plot gives it a finesse and a grain that’s different from the traditional Juliénas the Estate produces.
Serving suggestion: Between 15–18°C
The Juliénas goes very well with cold delicatessen meats and white meats, or with cheese.
The wine can be drunk within the year, but it can be kept for 2–4 years, depending on the year.
