Julien Courtois

France - Soings en Sologne

Julien Courtois created his own vineyard, Le Clos de la Bruyère, in 1998, having learned the trade from his father, Claude. The 4.5 hectare domain in Soings en Sologne is run by Julien and his girlfriend, Heidi Kuka. Here they work with seven varieties of grapes, including an ungrafted Menu Pineau, planted in 1978, which is used to make the Originel wine.  

Both Julien and his father have always kept to the principles of making wines from low-yield vineyards, allowing them to reach the optimum concentration, and working on the basis of natural cycles. This means that the harvest takes places at the point of the grapes’ peak maturity, and all by hand. Chemical treatment for the vines is also avoided, with plant-based mixtures used instead.  

“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.”
