Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From Beaujolais, this is a full-bodied Gamay wine, medium-ruby in colour with red and black berry on the palate. Smooth acidity and tannins, well-balanced and ready to drink. Pair with red meats, poultry with French herbs, pork roast with sage, and hard cheeses.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of ripe cherry, black pepper, cedar and leather. Medium bodied with some bright acidity, dark berry flavors on the palate, and more leather and spice on the finish. Enjoy with grilled meats, burgers, or sausages.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Juliénas Beaujolais has more structure and weight than many. Red fruit, black currant and wet stones offer up interest on the nose and palate. Nicely balanced. Serve with ribs. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
From Juliénas in the Beaujolais wine region, Georges Duboeuf Château Des Capitaines 2017 is a dry and medium-plus bodied 100% Gamay with crushed raspberry, black currant and cinnamon spice flavours on the palate. Grapes are sourced from a single vineyard around the 19th-Century castle in the heart of Juliénas, that is locally known as Les Capitans. - Community Wine Reviews
