Type: Red Wine
Region & Country: Beaujolais, France
Description: Jules Desjourneys by Fabien Duperry. Both a newcomer and a pioneer, Fabien has put incredible quality and attention into the production of his wines and even into the type of cork closures he picks to use. Dr. Jamie Goode, on his blog Wine Anorak, wrote about Fabien Duperry and his wines and proclaimed that Fabien "threatens to overshadow" the gang of five that originally elevated the quality of the Beaujolais wine region. This wine comes from fruit from two different parcels that were refused appellation status. The wines however are something special, made with Burgundian finesse and longevity.
