Meet the Winemaker
Eight hectares of the vineyard grow white grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Muscadelle and Sémillon. Red varieties include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Some of the Merlot plots are over 50 years old. Julien aims at full expression of terroir with minimal intervention. He uses horse-drawn plows and encourages vine growth and biodiversity with biodynamic applications such as herbal teas, silica and horn manure. Barrel aging is moderate with almost no new oak and natural charring in order to have a low impact on aromas.
