History

This 19th Century château is at the heart of the Juliénas Appellation in the hamlet of ‘Les Capitans’.
The ancient cedars in the hectare of grounds bear witness to a great historic past.
The vines are planted in a single block around the Estate, on an excellent ‘terroir’.
The South-South-East exposure means that the grapes enjoy plenty of sunshine and achieve an ideal maturity.
In popular tradition, the hamlet is said to preserve traces of a Roman past. It was considered to be a strategic point and is thought to have been a headquarters, hence the name ‘Capitan’, which refers to its function as an officer’s quarters.

In the ’40s, the château belonged to Monsieur Victor PEYRET, one of whose legacies is the Victor PEYRET prize. The prize is awarded every year to a personality who has helped to promote the wine region.

Tasting

A deep red colour with a rich nose, revealing complex peach, cinnamon and occasionally blackcurrant aromas. On the palate, this Juliénas offers a very good structure that should allow it to age with great elegance.
