Sip & savor this cerebral, Burgundian stunner.

Julien Altaber makes nothing short of classic, beautiful Burgs. His Bourgogne Rouge is sourced from two plots from the lower part of Pommard named “Les Sorbins.” Half of the vines used in this cuvée are 60 years old, and the other half were planted in 2003. The fruit was directly pressed, and fermented in wooden vats prior to being aged in barrels for 9 months.
  • Julien Altaber spent his childhood amongst tractors and cows: basically, the guy was a born farmer.
  • After working his first harvest at 16, he knew that winemaking was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life and interned in Mâconnais and Beaujolais.
  • Julien eventually got his first winemaking gig working for Catherine and Dominique Derain where he studied Organic and Biodynamic winemaking before starting Domaine Sextant in 2007.

  • Leather armchairs.
  • Rosemary pork chops.
