In the northern part of Beaujolais, Juli'nas is one of the ten Crus. In the old days, Juli'nas was actually one of the first villages to produce wine. All around, the countryside was covered with chestnut trees. The soil is a mixture of granite and clay. As always in Beaujolais, Gamay is the grape variety used to produce these wines. Juli'nas is a sturdy, sinewy wine, with a surprisingly elegant bouquet of red berries. The colour has glints of raspberry. On the palate, the wine has good body with elegant tannins. The general impression combines finesse and depth. It can age very well for a few years (2-3), especially in good vintages.
