Details

Element Terre Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, 100% Gamay Chaudenay, unique wine, uplifting, sensual. 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. As the reds get older, they get more profound





Julien Courtois, following in his father Claude's footsteps, created his own vineyard, Le Clos de la Bruyère, in 1998. Based in Soings en Sologne, the 4.5 hectare domain is run by Julien and his girlfriend, Heidi. They work with seven varieties of grapes, including an ungrafted Menu Pineau, planted in 1978, which is used to make the Originel wine. They adhere strictly to the principle of making wines from low-yield vineyards, so the wines can be as concentrated as possible. Their work is guided by the natural rhythms of nature, and all the work takes place by hand. Chemical treatments are eschewed in favour of plant-based remedies. “We make wines that are different, natural and rich from the values provided by a sane wine-making process,” Julien explains. “Whether in the vineyards or in the cellar, wines are made without any chemical products, which gives them a unique and singular taste.” Tasting his wines is one of those rare wine experiences which make you feel privileged to be tasting something special produced by someone unique.
