VDF 100% Rose Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, Menu Pineau, unique, Vin Jaune like, salty, layered, delicious. This unusual wine made from biodynamic master Julien Courtois is made by leaving the wine to mature in half filled barrels, so that a flor yeast develops, giving the wine salty notes of Manzanilla sherry, or the textured nuttiness of Vin Jaune. This is fascinating wine, layered with peach, apricot, smoky minerality and that je-ne-sais-quoi from the maturation. Try with tagines, tapenade or a strong comté cheese.

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.
