Nestled between Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmiral mountain chain in the heart of a Provençal village is Domaine de la Graveirette, where Julien Musan produces exclusively biodynamic wines. His 2018 vintage has a cherry red colour with a pinkish rim. On the nose, this wine has a peony and violet-like floral side with notes of cherry and raspberry, too. Once on the palate, the texture is supple with fruity flavours and tannins to finish.

Winemaker

Julien Mus

After having completed studies in viti-oenology, Julien Mus began cultivating vines. In 2005, he decided to produce his own wines with his wine cellar in a former agricultural hangar in Sarrians. As the third generation of his wine family, Julien Mus inherited plots of land from his father. He subsequently expanded the size of his vineyard on the plains and on the hillsides (8 acres). Julien Mus has succeeded in promoting his passion and skills.
