Juliénas : Some wines have character!
Over sixty vinegrowers tend Juliénas vines, this area is without a doubt at the origin of the Beaujolais region's viticultural vocation. With the greatest variety in terrain of all the Beaujolais vinegrowing area, this Cru dons a deep intense ruby robe, with aromas of strawberry, violet, cinnamon, red currant, and peony, releasing fleshy, well-built flavours that are discreetly spicy and a good length in the mouth. Growing at 230 to 430 metres above sea-level the vines are shared between soils of granitic origin in the west and sedimentary terrain in the east. It is worth leaving the bottles to age for 2 to 3 years for the nuances of vanilla and spice to fill out.
