2016 Aloxe-Corton, Les Valozieres, Gérard Julien et Fils

The buzz around Aloxe - a hitherto overlooked commune - continues to grow, and Etienne demonstrates why here. The fruit is crystalline and fresh, silky on the palate and there’s lovely balance. Delicious.

2016 Aloxe-Corton, Les Valozieres, Gérard Julien et Fils
Domaine Gérard Julien & Fils

The town of Comblanchien is yet to attract more attention for fine wine than for its quarries, but that’s about to change. And it’s thanks to Etienne Julien. We discovered this brilliant young winemaker (his first vintage was 2012) thanks to a tip-off from his friend and fellow rising star Maxime Cheurlin of Domaine Georges Noëllat. We can only recommend you start buying his wines now before word is truly out. Joyful, energetic and vivacious, these Pinot Noirs are a true hedonist’s delight.
