Grape Growing
Julien sources his grapes from friends who are biodynamically farming in the area.  The Monthélie vineyards are, in fact, very close to some of the finest vineyards of Volnay! It is definitely an appellation to watch. The soils are excellent, the exposure good and the proximity to the other fine appellations means that great wines are possible here.

Wine Making
Hand harvested, using approximately 50% whole bunch.  Fruit is pressed after 12 days maceration then matured in aged French oak barrique for 12 months. Unfiltered, unfined.
