Domaine Gerard Julien
The wines of Étienne Julien are sharp and focused. These are indeed wines made to drink and enjoy without compromising depth and complexity.
The Julien estate is located in Comblancien on RN974 – just at the entrance to the village coming from Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Étienne Julien is a funny and cheerful young vigneron in his mid twenties; sharp and with a great sense of humor. He however makes no mistakes and serious about the wine quality made at the estate. This is like most other estates an old family estate, and Étienne’s first vintage was 2012, so impressive progress already.
It is often problematic to compare style and qualities between estates, the Etienne’s wines have the similarities as the wines from his good friend Maxime Cheurlin.
