Julien Vedel is one of the most rare and special producers we work with – a true micro-domaine. The entirety of the domaine consists of a scant 0.2 ha parcel in the heart of Vouvray, near the town of Noizay. It is in this ‘Premiere Cote’ of Vouvray where the slopes are the steepest and limestone sits closest to the topsoil. Julien farms this small parcel biodynamically and ploughs the soil exclusively by horse. His experience working with Philippe Foreau, as his vineyard manager, endowed him with the experience necessary to produce such exquisitely balanced Chenin Blanc.
