JULIEN VIANA | AOP SAVOIE | CRUET
Certified Organic since 2017.
Cellier de La Baraterie is a small domain created in 2014, Julien started with three plots at the age of 21 years old and is now currently farming organically 4 ha of vineyard in the village of Cruet in the Alps.
We came across Julien’s wines during a visit at Pierre Cotton’s winery in Beaujolais. They both studied together winemaking and viticulture in the same school.
The type of soil is quite diverse in the area as you can find some marl, limestone, and red clay. Julien is working with various varieties Jacquere, Altesse, and Malvoisie for the whites. Pinot noir, Mondeuse, and Gamay for his reds across different plots.
Most of the wines are fermented with natural yeasts and aged in stainless steel tanks on the fine lies to preserve the freshness of the wines. Wine is aged without sulphured until bottling.
