2018 Sextant - Julien Altaber Intuition Foudre14187
WINEMAKER: Julien Altaber & Carole Schwab
REGION: Burgundy, FR
"This is one of three new “long maceration” or orange wines that Julien and Carole are experimenting with to great effect. As with the Les Fas described above, this is a long maceration wine made from Chardonnay." - Living Wines
Julien is a thoughtful person who has absorbed the art and the science of winemaking and decided to branch out with his own wines made from grapes sourced from some very good terroirs in the area. Julien and Carole Schwab have now bought the Domaine Derain business in addition to their commitments to the Sextant domaine and will be making the Derain wines from now on (with Dominique still in the background!).
