Benjamin Passot Juliénas 'Vaux' 2020 

This is the 2020 vintage of Benjamin's Juliénas and comes from an old vines parcel in the commune of Vaux. This wine combines power and elegance with dense red fruit flavours, meaty/umami undertones, freshness and length a serious Beaujolais Cru wine. More weight and ripe fruit flavours than the 2021 vintage thanks to a warmer vintage.
