Benjamin's Juliénas comes from an old vines parcel in the commune of Vaux . This wine combines power and elegance with dense red fruit flavours, meaty/umami undertones, freshness and length, a serious Beaujolais Cru wine. 

The 2021 vintage is delicate but has a lot of concentration for such a light wine. 11.5% alcohol makes this one very drinkable indeed. A weekday smasher that can take a little bit of a chill. 

About Benjamin 

Born in Burgundy, Benjamin also developed his craft working the vines of Vosne Romanée, home to some of the worlds most celebrated (and expensive) Pinot Noir and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his Beaujolais project. The grapes are 100% destemmed in Benjamin's wines, this is unusual for Beaujolais, the wines are really transparent silky as a result. He also adds stalks back into the wines in different amounts depending on the vintage, this provides extra aromatic complexity and phenolic content. 

Each of his cru's have their own personality and reflect the subtle differences in the sites he works with.  Hand harvested grapes. long maturations in old oak barrels, light extraction and minimal intervention in the winery. We were particularly excited when we tasted his old vine wines from vines in Chenas and Juliénas where he works with 80 year old vines that produce deeply flavoured wines that have concentration but also drinkability at the same time.
