Details

Resonance Chenin Blanc Julien Courtois, biodynamic wine, Chenin Blanc, unique, stunning rich and fresh, complex wine. The new Cuvee from Julian Courtois has all the hallmarks of this great biodynamic estate in Soings en Sologne. The Chenin is matured for several years in the Church like cellat tacked on to Julien's house. The wine is searingly fresh, crystalline, yet full bodied, the acidity is off the chart and makes the wine seem young yet there is such complexity behind, amazing wine from an amazing wine maker.





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.
