A fantastic wine from a humble appellation and a very modern producer. Rich pepper and bold spice, delicious.
French red wine from South Rhone Valley France, made with Grenache and Syrah.
Domaine de la Vieille Julienne was acquired in 1905 by the Daumen family. The vineyard was mainly planted at the time and is one of the oldest in the region with an average of 50 years old vines. Jean Paul Daumen joined the estate in 1990 following a biodynamic approach. The quality of the wines produced increased and the domaine is regarded today as one of the best and most innovative in the appellation. In 2010 Jean Paul also started a small negociant activity in order to produce a Vin de Pays. View our selection.
