The 2008 Julienas La Trinquee represents a cuvee from several growers farming what the Duboeufs consider the best sector of Julienas.

The 2008 Julienas La Trinquee represents a cuvee from several growers farming what the Duboeufs consider the best sector of Julienas. Tart bright red fruits are tinged with pepper making for a striking contrast with this year's flower label Julienas. This shows admirable penetration in an exhilaratingly refreshing long finish rendered more interesting by suggestions of herb and stone. (The structured 2008 Julienas Chateau des Capitains was still in tank when I tasted it rather perturbed by its CO2 - which will of course dissipate - but also by its wood component.) There is only a tiny lot of flower labeled Saint Amour this year still in tank when I tasted it juicily ripe if a bit simple. -David Schildknecht
