THE REVIEW

Beaujolais reds are the unsung heroes of Burgundy. When most people think of Beaujolais, they think of Beaujolais Nouveau and Thanksgiving. But if you do, you are missing out on some of the finest red wines from the Burgundy region.
    While most red Burgundies are made from Pinot Noir, red Beaujolais are made from Gamay - think Pinot Noir, but much heartier and more muscular.
    There are ten "Crus" in Beaujolais, and Julienas is one of the best. Unlike a Beaujolais Nouveau which is lighter, soft and simple, cru Beaujolais are complex, juicy and downright delicious.
    An exceptional wine from a stellar Burgundy vintage, Clos du Fief Julienas boasts an invigorating amalgam of cassis and red raspberry, bitter-sweet herbs, and vibrant mineral shadings. Using only the best vines and parcels (Cuvee Prestige), the wine exhibits specific characteristics of Burgundian wine making and terroir. Sappy and persistent, it harbors a hint of finishing tannin.
    Enjoy this hearty Beaujolais over the next 5 years and use it as a great warm weather wine. Drink this Julienas at room temperature or even better, chill it slightly for a minute or two making this a perfect summer quaffer. Pair with veal, grilled meats, duck, chicken and hearty salads. Also, don't forget to save a few bottles for Thanksgiving. Enjoy!Read More »
