Background

History

An emperor’s wine by name. And one was needed, as a tribute to the divine Julius Caesar. A writers’ wine, too, as it’s a favourite with writers and certain journalists, especially at the “Canard Enchaîné”, where they are thought to have invented the amusing expression, “going to take the waters in Juliénas”. By giving Juliénas such joyful publicity, these famous patrons made it very popular. Joy goes so well in Juliénas that the dynamic producers’ association built a great Cellar in its honour, with some very jolly bacchanalian frescoes. And not just anywhere : in anold disused church at the heart of Juliénas village. All the village people celebrate there every year on the second weekend in November : a chance to taste the newborn vintage and honour a writer who sang the praises of their beloved nectar. 104 bottles of Juliénas are handed over to the writer so that he can enjoy it every Saturday and Sunday in the year !

Regional info

Often described as the King of Beaujolais, Georges Duboeuf is also its most tireless ambassador. Having pioneered modern winemaking in the region and stoked the fires of the Beaujolais boom with unrivalled vigour, he refuses to rest on his laurels. Duboeuf still tastes hundreds of wines each day, and marshals his enormous range almost single-handed. While flower-label Beaujolais remains his empire’s most recognisable creation, one must remember he is a merchant as well as a winemaker: the company distributes numerous high-quality domaine wines from Beaujolais and beyond, alongside certain super-cuvees made by the master himself. Vineyard: Juliénas is a relatively small cru, with steep, sheltered, well-drained slopes ensuring consistenly excellent quality.
