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.

Vineyards & Viticulture

Julien Vedel makes a single wine from a 0.2 ha parcel of biodynamically farmed Chenin in the premiere côte of Vouvray, while working full time as the vineyard manager for Philippe Foreau. This is one of the rarest, and most delicious Vouvrays being made today.
