2015 Juliénas “Beauvernay”

Domaine Chignard

2015 Juliénas “Beauvernay” Domaine Chignard - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Cédric Chignard welcomed Anthony Lynch and me last spring for our first visit to the Juliénas vineyard that he recently inherited from his maternal grandmother. The sight was striking: a very steep slope, just beneath the village church spire, littered with blue volcanic stones, and short, stubby, gobelet-pruned vines poking like witches’ fingers from the stony rubble. The chilly morning fog slowly lifted. Cédric was prepared with a tire-bouchon and a bottle of his Juliénas to taste the fruit of his terroir right then and there. It was remarkable to witness how much this bold, sinewy, flinty wine resembled the land from which it had sprouted. Textbook Juliénas: start here to understand this fabled cru. It combines the power and structure of Côte de Brouilly with the silkiness and perfume of the Côte de Py. –Dixon Brooke
