    THE STORY: Julien Pilon described himself as a landless winemaker when he started on his own in 2010. The Domaine is now a modest 5 hectares of vines, some owned, some rented, while the majority of the production is still sourced from purchased grapes. 80 percent of Julien’s production is white wines. He strives to produce white wines with flesh but with maximum freshness too. He wants to make balanced and precise whites. And he quite succeeds at this as he is producing some of the most exciting Rhône whites - wines of genuine flair and class. The wines are very much in the image of the vigneron too – understated, stylish and relying more on nuance than overt power. In just a few vintages, his whites are among the best in the region.
