    Information about domain Vieille Julienne

    Current owner Jean-Paul Daumen's great-grandfather bought this very fine property in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and planted the vines here at the end of the last century. It has been a family concern since 1905. In 1960, Maxime Daumen made the transition from selling wine in bulk to the trade, to bottling his own wine. Jean-Paul Daumen took up the baton in 1990. He immediately adopted a more natural approach to tending the soil and the vines, limiting treatments and abandoning the use of chemical fertilisers and products. He also draws inspiration from biodynamic practices such as observing the lunar cycles. The vineyard boasts 25 uninterrupted hectares of pebbly terroir and grows wines under the Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and vin de pays appellations. Its Vieille Julienne wines are produced in a classical style and have a reputation for excellence with tremendous ageing potential. They are also very expressive, dense and fruity wines and a good reflection of their terroirs and vintages.
