Red wine. Beaujolais, France. 100% Gamay. "The Juliénas “les Capitans” from Domaine des Bruyeres is produced from one hundred year-old vines! The wine is fermented in the traditional, semi-carbonic style of the region, with indigenous yeasts and raised in cement vats prior to bottling. The 2018 les Capitans from Monsieur Durand is pretty ripe at fourteen percent octane, but also offers up fine purity in its aromatic blend of black cherries, sweet cranberries, bonfire, lovely spice tones, gamebird and a superb base of soil. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and succulent, with good soil signature, a fine core and a long, vibrant and complex finish. There is just a touch of dried fruit elements on the backend of the palate, which is the only sign that it hails from the warm summer of 2018, as the wine impressively transparent and light on its feet. Good juice." —90 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #85 (January/February 2020)
