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