Jules Desjourneys: The Best of Beaujolais and Mâcon
A few years ago, a new Domaine emerged in the Beaujolais and Mâcon regions of France—and it quickly became one of our favorites. Fabien Duperry, the man behind Jules Desjourneys, has been in the business for many years, having worked as a wine merchant to some of Burgundy’s most renowned names. His wines are complex, expressive and utterly delicious. Let's take a closer look at what makes Jules Desjourneys so special.
Fabien is constantly striving to improve his wines both in the cellar and vineyard. He has moved away from barrels and now ages all his wines either in Concrete or Glass vessels. Depending on the vintage, there can be varying amounts of whole cluster fruit used in each wine. That said, every bottle is a unique expression of terroir that will age gracefully for many years to come or impress you with its flavor profile whenever you pull the cork!
Jules Desjourneys produces several excellent wines that are sure to please avid wine lovers. From their classic Beaujolais Villages Rouge to their light and vibrant Macon-Villages Blancs, these are wines that capture the essence of their terroirs with subtlety and finesse. And if you're looking for something special, we recommend their single-vineyard Bourgogne Rouge made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown near Chardonnay’s borders. It's an outstanding example of what this region has to offer! Offerings like these make Jules Desjourneys a must-try domaine—both for seasoned connoisseurs and those just getting started on their French wine journey!
At Jules Desjourneys, Fabien Duperry has created something truly special—wines that express the nuances of their terroir with elegance and refinement. Whether you're looking for an everyday red or white or something more special for those occasions when only exceptional quality will do, this Domaine has it all!
