Château De Julienas wines
This vast estate produces wines that go against the current, playing more on the structure than on the fruit. Its juliénas are to be drunk in their second year or even, preferably, in their third year, so that the tannins settle down. Traditionally on the Juliénas cru, the estate has recently been offering two other crus: Fleurie since 2012, having acquired a one-hectare plot in the place called Les Moriers, and since 2014 Moulin-à-Vent, the newcomer to the big potential, produced on a small plot of less than one hectare. It is always the same grape variety, Gamay, but each wine obtained is different and has its own personality!
