Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby in color, this Juliénas has a bouquet with both floral (irises and peonies) and fruit character (strawberry, peach and raspberry). Its typically firm texture comes from its backbone of natural acidity and tannin. Well-structured and flavorful, with perfect balance.

Juliénas, "imperial wine," was named after the great Julius Caesar. With its one-of-a-kind taste, it is also known as an "editorial wine," preferred by many French writers and a number of newsmen in Paris. Some... View More

Critical Acclaim

WW 90
Wilfred Wong of

Excellent deep ruby hue. Lovely, shy, slightly grapy aromas of flowers and red fruit usher in flavors of red fruit set off by crisp acidity. An ideal food wine with a long, pleasing finish.

The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Julienas La Trinquee represents a cuvee from several growers farming what the Duboeufs consider the best sector of Julienas. Tart, bright red fruits are tinged with pepper, making for a striking contrast with this year’s flower label Julienas. This shows admirable penetration in an exhilaratingly refreshing, long finish rendered more interesting by suggestions of herb and stone. (The structured 2008 Julienas Chateau des Capitains was still in tank when I tasted it, rather perturbed by its CO2 – which will of course dissipate – but also by its wood component.) There is only a tiny lot of flower labeled Saint Amour this year, still in tank when I tasted it, juicily ripe, if a bit simple.

Georges Duboeuf, , France - Other regions
For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned négociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuissé, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
