Georges Duboeuf Chateau de Juliénas 2015

Overview

This wine displays a shiny and profound garnet color with fullbodied notes of oak, grilled hazelnuts, blackberry and blueberry. With a robust, rich, heady and dense texture, the wine finds balance between the woody aromas and the ripeness of the fruit.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The remarkable 50-years-old vines (and older) form one single, undivided vineyard circling the estate and benefit from optimal soil and microclimate conditions. Southern vineyard exposure to the sun allows the grapes to attain perfect ripening, using the Gobelet Trellis System, before they are harvested. Harvesting of this wine is done manually, in whole bunches and the grapes are unstemmed. Maceration occurs, using racking, and wine is aged in new Fondres (large French oak barrels) for one year, before spending eight months in the bottle.

Interesting Fact
The vineyards are owned by the Condemne family, long-time growers in the Julienas Cru that have worked with the Duboeufs for many years.

This wine pairs nicely with steak, green pepper sauce and mature cheeses.
