Domaine Heitz-Lochardet - Armand Heitz Julienas 2019

This wine is a brilliant of example of what the very best and most established wine makers are doing in Beaujolais currently and reflects what exciting wines can be found in the area.  2019 is the second vintage of Armand Heitz’ Julienas, a Beaujolais made in traditional Burgundian method. 100% whole cluster with no new oak and very little pumping over. Old school Burgundian mixed cherries with old barrel smell. This is a nice ‘hybrid’ between flashy Beaujolais and old school Burgundy.

I love Gamay and this does not disappoint. It is all red AND dark cherries, balanced acidity, silky tannins and some earthy notes. Perfect for winter months and such fantastic value.

As well as looking at the up-and-coming parts of Burgundy like Cote Chalonnaise, Beaujolais is such an exciting area currently within the Burgundy eco-system.
