Juliénas is one of the lesser seen Beaujolais crus on Australian shelves. From gamay of course, this is a particularly likeable expression of it. In the glass, the Château des Capitans Juliénas from the 2020 vintage has crisp red raspberry aromatics that are textbook in expression. The palate is red fruited, taut and provides chirpy and enjoyable drinking. Drink now, with or without reasons or food.
