Details

Autochtone Romorantin Julien Courtois, natural wine, no added sulphur, unique flavours. 100% Romorantin, a rare grape grown in the Loire, Autochtone is a rare delight, a wine of immense complexity whose precision and definition in youth expands into a complex multitude of flavours and layers with age. Taught as all Julien's wines are with defining acidity, Autochtone has amazing balance, minerality and of course drinkability. Both fruity and savoury, this is not wine for crispy Sauvignon Blanc devotees, it is something different for those who love to explore wine and the myriad of different flavours and textures the grape can give us. Brilliant wine. New vintage is delicious, well they are always are from Julien!


Julien Courtois is a wine artisan of immense talent and devotion to his craft. He has 4.5 hectares of Biodynamic vineyard in Soings-en-Sologne called Clos de la Bruyère. I recently tasted the new vintages of Julien's wines at his tiny cellar in Soings-en-Sologne. It was one of those rare wine experiences which make you feel privileged to be tasting something special produced by someone unique. I had been tasting all day with a pretty hefty hangover so specifics about any of the wines are beyond me! It is enough to say, i came out of Julien's tiny cellar thinking, they are the purest most illuminating wines i have ever tasted.
