Winemaker's Notes

Number 30 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This wine displays a sumptuous deep red color. Its intense, complex nose offers an array of fruits, from peach to raspberry and black currant, with a subtle touch of cinnamon. Ample structure and excellent balance will allow this wine to age in bottle quite gracefully.

Food and Wine Affinities: Coq au vin, red meats grilled or oven-roasted, game and distinctive cheese.

"Aged in 20% oak barrels, the 2005 Julienas Chateau des Capitans (an estate jointly owned by Duboeuf and his US importer, Bill Deutsch) boasts a profound nose of spicy black cherries. Medium-bodied, expansive, spicy, and pure, this well-focused wine sports a wonderfully sweet character crammed with red as well as black fruits. It is fruit-driven yet structured and should age well. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
Barrel Tasting: 90-92 Points

Excellent nose and taste, and an unbeatable price made this easily my favorite wine I tried in 2007. Fruity but not too sweet, it paired great with steak, cheese, even pizza.

Learn About Beaujolais

(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...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby 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...
