Domaine de Boischampt Juliénas Les 4 Cerisiers 2018
WineSpark Price €17.82
This wine sold out just before Christmas - more is on the way, arriving early 2023! In the meantime, try Thibaud's other wine - the Domaine de Boischampt Juliénas Vayolette.
This is Thibaud’s flagship wine, and a great introduction to the Juliénas sub-region of Beaujolais.
It’s the perfect balance of the bright red fruit of the Gamay grape, and the earthiness of the ‘terroir’ of Juliénas.
This was the first year Thibaud made this wine, and each year he’s made small improvements to make it better. But the key to Juliénas is time - and this wine has had 3 and a half years’ ageing before it reaches your glass.
I first tasted this at Thibaud’s winery, Domaine de Boischampt, and we enjoyed it later that evening in his kitchen with his wife Antonie and two kids.
If you like a classic southern French red, like Ben’s Minervois, this wine is for you.
