Palate Profile

The ‘Les Capitans’ vineyard is located at the extreme north-west of the Beaujolais area, within the Cru of Juliénas. This Les Capitans climat is without doubt the most famous of the appellation. The soil is stoney, ancient alluvium on clay-granite bedrock, a matrix of clay and granite, which ensures a stable water supply throughout the year. Thanks to its direct southern exposure, the grapes ripen optimally to produce a well-structured wine with fruity and spicy aromas. The vines are 60 to 120 years old.

The wine is dark red in hue, this wine reveals a deep bouquet. Its nose is complex, with dark fruits, tobacco and liquorice, typical aromas of its terroir. The impression on the palate unveils the numerous qualities of this wine. It is powerful, with tannins softened by its long aging and perfectly balanced, with a touch of freshness most welcome in this solar vintage. The aromas are particularly long-lasting on the palate, indicator of an exceptional wine.
