The father-son team of Michel and Sylvain Tête runs Domaine du Clos du Fief. This is a rare 4th generation Cru estate in Juliénas and Julie, based in the far Northwest sector of Beaujolais. The history of these great villages dates back more than 2,000 years, and their names can be traced back to Julius Caesar. In the Gallo-Roman period, the vines were grown on the high-altitude hillsides of Juliénas and Jullié (a granite-rich Beaujolais-Villages Cru that mimics its more famous neighbor). Michel took over this history-rich land after studying in Beaune, where he learned many techniques that he now uses in his wines to great acclaim. Michel and Sylvain harken their wines back to the classics: low yields, meticulously farmed vineyards, and classic winemaking, resulting in serious and mouthwatering examples of terroir-driven reds.

"Fresh raspberries, lemon rind, crushed stones, and thyme on the nose. It's sleek and fresh with a medium body and fine, lightly chalky tannins. Fresh minerality throughout, continuing on a subtle yet long finish. Drink or hold 93 points" James Suckling
