Where and How?
This comes from organically farmed grapes in the Ebouli vineyard, from the Massif des Bauges, planted on limestone soils.
The grapes are pressed directly, and the wine ferments naturally in stainless steel, where it also ages. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with just a touch of sulphites at bottling.
The Winemaker: Cellier de la Baraterie
Julien grew up in the Savoie, which aside from its famous ski resorts, is also a key agricultural region of France. Although he didn’t inherit any family vineyards, early on he became smitten with the idea of making wine, and was fortunate to find some vineyards in the village of Cruet.
It’s not only breathtakingly beautiful; the area is also recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Indeed, his village dates back to the 14th century. With this in mind, combined with his personal gardening hobby, he decided from the get-go that he would work organically. His wines taste every bit as pure as the scenic mountains they come from.
