About the Producer

Domaine de la Roseraie is a fruit of labour for Julien Petitjean, a former historian who made a career switch to viticulture and winemaking at the beginning of the 2000s. The domaine was incepted in 2012, and currently comprises a 5 hectare vineyard with 2.8 hectares producing wines.

In search of the most natural wine production methods and in his endeavour to replicate the vibrance in cuvées reminiscent of pre-technological eras, he explored and applied medieval winemaking techniques, resurrecting simplicity and purity in the processes.

The principles of biodynamic are followed, with cover cropping practised and biodiversity embraced. Vinification stays truthful to ancient techniques. Julien leaves the wines as long as it takes, sometimes years, to complete the fermentation process. Wines are bottled without fining and filtration, nor addition of sulfites.
