The Juliénas area covers the souther and southwestern side of Mont de Bessay which at 478 m. altitude, is the last hill to the north of Beaujolais, in the Mâconnais region. Along with Pruzilly and Emeringes, the towns of Jullié and Juliénas define the limits of this cru's soil. Granite soils that are rich in alluvial sediments produce wines of character that age well.
• Semi-carbonic maceration 12 to 15 days • Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures • 100% malolactic fermentation • Exclusively aged in stainless steel vats.
Juliénas goes well with coq au vin, poultry in sauce or poached eggs in a wine sauce (oeufs en meurette)…
During the harvest, grapes are exclusively hand-picked with care by our grape-pickers.
