-Julien Sunier grew up in the village of Dijon, where his mother made her living cutting hair. One of her regular clients was illustrious winemaker, Christophe Roumier.
-When Julien graduated from school he worked with Roumier where he found the "wine bug" and spent his early twenties globe-trotting to various wine regions.
-After tasting his way through the World, Julien returned to Burgundy and began to work with Nicholas Potel and found a passion for organic and biodynamic winemaking.
-Julien started his own Domaine in 2008. All fruit is harvested by hand before sorting and fermentation begins. Wines age up to 11 months in 3 - 9 year old Burgundy barrels from Christophe Roumier. Only 315 cases produced.
