From a winemaker who travels endlessly to find fruit from not just across Burgundy, but basically all of France as well, working with Chardonnay from Saint-Aubin (basically Julien’s home patch) must come as something of a relief for him. Taken from two of the top parcels in the town (La Chateniaire and La Combe au Sud) this is stunning stuff that reminds us of the very best that Meursault and Puligny have to offer, at a relative fraction of the price.

Julien Altaber has worked at Saint-Aubin’s Domaine Derain for years where he rose from cellar hand to essentially handling  most of the estate’s winemaking alongside legendary natural wine maverick Dominique Derain. Julien now focusses most of his time on his own production with a network of small vineyards and like-minded growers providing the fruit for wines that feel like a truly unique expression of the Burgundian countryside.
