Domaine Gérard Julien et Fils

Based in Comblanchien, just to the south of Nuits-St-Georges, Etienne took over from his father in 2012 and has quickly got people excited about the wines he is crafting. He is the fifth generation, his family beginning back in 1882! Despite currently working out of fairly cramped cellars (no doubt a new cuverie will be requisitioned soon!) Etienne has an enviable assurance and confidence about his winemaking. He prefers using concrete vats to stainless steel ones and is not afraid of new oak, athough he doesn’t overdo it. He has some lovely plots with plenty of old vines and likes to make the most of their innate concentration, which means he doesn’t have to force the wines or overwork them. Consequently, they have a delicious approachability yet also a depth and intensity that suggests longevity too. All in all, this is an exciting domaine that is winning fans hand over fist and it’s easy to see why.
