Description
  • Maison Louis Latour selects the grapes for this wine from the steep hillsides of the area which boast an ideal southerly exposure. Juliénas is a wine that in the best years can rival the appellations of Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon for its power and finesse. Due to the hotter climate and the unique viticultural practices this Cru du Beaujolais has a very individual character which is inhanced by the traditional fermentation which it undergoes.
