Domaine-Julien-Echezeaux-Grand-Cru-2014

Domaine Julien, Echezeaux Grand Cru, 2014

The domaine’s beginnings date back to the late 19th century when François Xavier Julien first purchased some vineyard land in Comblanchien and Nuits‐Saint‐Georges. After the second World War, François’ son Armand set about expanding their holdings by purchasing more vineyards. His son Gérard continued the expansion in the 70s and 80s bringing the estate to roughly 10 hectares, where it is today with his acquisition of parcels of Nuits Villages, Nuits‐Saint‐Georges and Echézeaux Grand Cru.

Recently, Gerard’s son Étienne Julien has assumed control of the estate. The fourth generation at the helm, Étienne is ushering in a new era of quality. Étienne set about upgrading things from the moment he took the reins beginning with the vineyards. A more organic approach was adopted and now the follow a strict “lutte raisonnée” methodology to control disease and pests. Yields are carefully controlled now and there is a sorting both in the vineyard as well as the winery before the grapes are destemmed.
Étienne has just taken over at the domaine, but in a very short time it’s clear he is a real talent who is continuing to improve. In the coming years he no doubt will be one of the fresh faces in Burgundy that everyone will be talking about.
