Originally from Tours, Julien Pineau 's college years saw him studying sociology and law, two fields that would have bored him to tears had he pursued them professionally. As a young post-collegiate, Julien worked for the l'Alliance Française in Seattle and later Sicily for a few years. Upon returning to France, he payed the rent through a variety of random jobs, including picking fruit, a stint at an antique store and studying soil compositions for a geology center.

Whole cluster fermentation, little tinge of effervescence, nice and clear acidity. Fruity but reserved. Definitely a gulper with some complexity.
