Grape Growing
Julien sources his grapes from friends who are biodynamically farming in the area.  Coteaux Bourguignons is a relatively new appellation in Burgundy and wines can be made under this appellation from the southernmost part at the bottom of Beaujolais to the northernmost part up near Chablis. Grapes were grown on calcareous clay soils.

Wine Making
Julien left 80% of the grapes as whole clusters and the skins were left with the juice for 15 days to extract some colour.  After the maceration 75% was transferred to a 15 hectolitre wooden foudre and the rest was stored in oak barrels that were between 5 to 10 years old. The wine was matured for 8 months in these vessels before being bottled.
