Details

Element Terre Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, 100% Gamay Chaudenay, unique wine, uplifting, sensual, the new vintage! This unusual grape Gamay Chaudenay which has pink pulp sings purity on the palate. Element-Terre is a fascinating natural wine, immensely juicy, ripe and so drinkable, it goes in ten minutes. For simple country food like Pates and strong cheeses, crunchy spring veg with home made mayonnaise, this is just spot on. Julien also recommends with game dishes. The new 2015 vintage is sensational, not funky at all, just smooth juicy fruit, amazing freshness and great balance. It will age well too.





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 enough to say, i came out of Julien's tiny cellar thinking, they are the purest most illuminating wines i have ever tasted.
