Georges Duboeuf 2016 Chateau des Capitans Julienas Beaujolais France
91 Points - ‘Editor’s Choice’ - Wine Enthusiast, March 2018
91 Points Vinous - Bright violet. Deep-pitched dark fruit, incense and licorice scents are given lift by an intense mineral quality. Sappy boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors become sweeter and more lively with air. Rich but nicely balanced, finishing energetic and long, with smooth tannins lending framework.
This wine displays a shimmering garnet color. Its nose is redolent in aromas of cherry, stone and black fruits, predominantly blueberry, with hints of kirsch and peppery notes, all of which carry through to the taste. Full-bodied, rich and heady, the wine has a solid tannic backbone signifying good aging potential.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Gamay
