The first 100% Michel Chapoutier wine since he took over the Trenel estate, Juliénas les Capitans already has everything it takes to magnify this exceptional climate, which is certainly the most renowned in the appellation. The old vines from which it is made (60 to 120 years old) as well as their remarkable exposure, give a powerful but supple wine with aromas typical of its terroir (black fruits, tobacco, liquorice).
This brilliant and ambitious red wine is clearly designed for laying down and is best forgotten in the cellar for a few years before being enjoyed. For wine lovers, this Juliénas les Capitans is set to make its mark in the world of great Beaujolais wines!
"This 2019 is drinking now, and we enjoy its very ripe fruit, reminiscent of cherry, black forest and violet. The old vines bring a density without heaviness, suggesting that a passage in the cellar can still make it grow." 91 points, Revue du Vin de France
