Georges Duboeuf Chateau des Capitans Julienas 2015

Juliénas, Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceThe “Capitans” estate, named after an ancient Roman headquarters, is surrounded by a one-piece vineyard facing south/southeast. Only 20 percent of this cru is matured in oak, leaving the fruit to sing. The nose, like the wine, is pretty with a spicy, floral nose flecked with wild cherries and dusty granite. The palate is more of the same. Delicious red/black raspberry fruit flecked with pepper throughout a silky, mineral, stony finish. Fresh, yet serious, and certainly capable of ageing a few years.Tasted: 16 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
