Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
An intense crimson color. A fine expression of this lovely 'Capitans' terroir, with highly complex aromas on the nose and palate – hints of flowers (peony), roasting, mocha and vanilla, fruit (blackberry), spices (pepper) and licorices. Remarkably rich on the palate with powerful tannins and an opulent fleshiness. A wine to lay down for many years. Sommelier's tip: decant an hour before serving.
"Duboeuf's 2009 Julienas Chateau des Capitains – from the upper reaches of its appellation – was, as usual, matured in small part in barrique. Boysenberry and cassis offer a seamless, engagingly, juicy, and less superficially sweet account of themselves than in the corresponding Seigneurie bottling. There is at most only a tiny bit of warmth in the finish, and that is more than offset by lip-smacking persistence of pure berry fruit and a shrimp shell-like sweet, saline savor. With the right richness of cuisine, this cool-weather cru should perform admirably.
The Wine Advocate
"This is dry Beaujolais, boasting as much structure as fruit. The tannins are prominent, underpinning the spicy black berry fruits. The effect is rich, a wine that will age well over 2–3 years."
"This spice-driven red is framed by dusty tannins and ripe acidity, with flavors of kirsch and blackberry intertwined with clove, anise and smoke notes. An understated, elegant Juliénas."
For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned negociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the King of Beaujolais. Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuisse, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his...Read More About Duboeuf
(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...Read More About Beaujolais
Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of
Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes
are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of
Burgundy in the
14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay
can also be...Read More About Gamay
