ratings pedigree (past vintages):
2008 The Wine Advocate rating: 89 points

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby in color, Juliénas has a bouquet with both floral (irises and peonies) and fruit characters (strawberry, peach and raspberry). Its typically firm texture comes from its backbone of natural acidity and tanin. Well structured and flavorful, with perfect balance.

Food pairings: Grilled beef or lamb, red meat or fowl in wine sauce, spicy dishes, aged cheese.

My Notes:

About Georges Duboeuf:

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned négociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuissé, 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 dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.

Over the years, Georges has developed long-standing relationships with the region's top growers and winemakers. Georges is involved in every aspect of his enterprise and is known for his passion and his legendary palate. In 2003, the Duboeuf family opened a new, modern winery in Romanéche-Thorins. The following year, the Duboeuf and Deutsch families jointly purchased Château des Capitans in Juliénas. With annual sales of 30 million bottles, Georges Duboeuf is one of the world's best-known French brands.
