80.00

Now helmed by the fourth generation of the Julien family, this small estate holds ten hectares in Comblanchien, Nuits‐Saint‐Georges, Nuits Villages and Echézeaux Grand Cru. Recently, Étienne Julien assumed control of the estate and is ushering in a new era of quality. Étienne set about upgrading things from the moment he took the reins beginning with the vineyards. A more organic approach was adopted and now the follow a strict “lutte raisonnée” methodology to control disease and pests. Yields are carefully controlled now and there is a sorting both in the vineyard as well as the winery before the grapes are destemmed. After a maceration of a few days with minimal punch downs, the wines are vinified and aged in 228L barrels until spring of the following year before being bottled. The Nuits‐St‐Georges 1er Cru is nurtured in 50% new oak barrels
