    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 30 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    This wine displays a sumptuous deep red color. Its intense, complex nose offers an array of fruits, from peach to raspberry and black currant, with a subtle touch of cinnamon. Ample structure and excellent balance will allow this wine to age in bottle quite gracefully.

    Food and Wine Affinities: Coq au vin, red meats grilled or oven-roasted, game and distinctive cheese.

    "Aged in 20% oak barrels, the 2005 Julienas Chateau des Capitans (an estate jointly owned by Duboeuf and his US importer, Bill Deutsch) boasts a profound nose of spicy black cherries. Medium-bodied, expansive, spicy, and pure, this well-focused wine sports a wonderfully sweet character crammed with red as well as black fruits. It is fruit-driven yet structured and should age well. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
    Barrel Tasting: 90-92 Points

    Excellent nose and taste, and an unbeatable price made this easily my favorite wine I tried in 2007. Fruity but not too sweet, it paired great with steak, cheese, even pizza.
