Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from vines that are 50 years or older. They are trellised in the traditional Gobelet style. The grapes are harvested manually, in whole bunches, and are destemmed prior to crushing. Semi-carbonic maceration takes place, and fermentation is conducted at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks.


Interesting Facts
An emperor’s wine by name. And one was needed, as a tribute to the divine Julius Caesar. A writers’ wine, too, as it’s a favorite with writers and certain journalists. Juliénas wines are colorful, solid, firm “autumn” wines that will reach their peak after a few years in the cellar.

Pairs best with grilled red meats, spicy dishes, and matured cheeses
