Centered around the town of Juliénas in Northern Beaujolais, this Cru du Beaujolais spans hillsides of degraded granite between 250 and 470 m of altitude, on average facing to the South-East.
The bouquet is floral and fruity, with aromas of strawberry, cherry and violet, red- and sometimes black-currant, peony and cinnamon, even peach in some years.
Lively and structured, elegant and seductive, Juliénas has good longevity. It pairs well with red meat roasts, white meat and poultry, roasted or in sauce.
