Julien Courtois,VDF ”Originel” 75cl

Rich, savoury energetic wine made in tiny quantity and with no intervention. Vintage plays an important role of course and the variation in style can be quite marked from year to year. The complexity of the wine is beguiling and the flavours that can be found are vast. Julien's wines are always full of vitality and energy, they are not fruity wines but instead show the terroir, vintage and variety in its purest form. They are a unique drinking experience and always rewarding.

Created in 1998 in Soings-en-Sologne, Clos de la Bruyère was founded by Julien Courtois, son of the famous (and infamous!) Claude Courtois, from Domaine Les Cailloux du Paradis. His passion for wine was born when he started learning how to run a vineyard and make wine with his father. Like his father, Julien’s aim has always been to make wines from low yielding vineyards in order to reach optimal concentration. With 4,5 hectares of vines, Julien works in close relation with natural cycles and waits for perfect maturity to harvest the grapes. The whole estate is harvested by hand and work in the cellar is left to the simplest expression.
