The Story

The wiry Julien Barge is running his own 6-hectare estate. The majority of his holdings are in the Côte Brune and he produces rich long-lived Côte Rôties. He has no truck with the current fashion for destalking and ferments with all the stems still intact. The wines are then aged in barrels and half-muids and are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
