Vin de France Pont Bourceau, Julien Delrieu

DELR001
This wine replaces Les Varennes, the cuvée Julien used to make with his ex-partners at Les Roches Sèches. Most of the grapes come from the lieu-dit Pont Bourceau planted in 1973, with a touch of Le Jeau planted in 1955. It was fermented in fibreglass, 25% was aged in 228ltr barrels (bought from local hero Stéphane Bernaudeau), then bottled with 10mg/l sulphur in March, no fining or filtration. Fresh and quaffable there is a schist stamp which brings drive to the palate.

Julien Delrieu

Julien is a kind, sensitive and soft-spoken vigneron with a strong thirst for knowledge: as well as being a bee-keeper (a passion depicted on his labels), he studied winemaking in Dijon, brewed beer with monks in Belgium, made cheese in Italy and researched sake yeasts in Japan!

Tasting Notes

Fresh and quaffable there is a schist stamp which brings drive to the palate.
