Julien Courtois Originel Menu Pineau, Romorantin, Biodynamic, unique savoury, terroir wine. Julien Courtois wine is always terroir driven and biodynamic wine. Originel is Menu Pineau from a low-yielding vineyard in the area of Soins-en-Sologne Originel is his first wine, mainly the Menu Pineau variety dominates the blend and it is 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.

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.
