Julie Balagny - 2020 - En Remont


Beaujolais, France

Julie Balagny landed in Fleurie in 2009 after many years heading the cellar of biodynamic pioneers Terre des Chardons. Originally from Paris, her first career seemed destined to be in psychomotricity, the process of teaching basic motor skills to the mentally handicapped. After heading the cellar of a more "chemical" estate, then Terre des Chardons, Julie decided it was time to start her own project. With her sites on either the Beaujolais or the Jura, she did some research, and with the help of Yvon Métras and Michel Guignier, was able to purchase her current property, an isolated clos with 3.2 hectares of vines, two hectares of prairies and three hectares of woods. Inspired by her past experience at Terre des Chardons, Julie quickly saw the biodynamic potential of this land. En Remont is all Gamay from Balagny's estate, particularly from a parcel on a sector of the hill that has granite and quartz soils. (Louis Dressner)
