Julien Fournier and his brother Max are transforming the quality of their family domaine with rich Pinot Meunier Grower Champagnes.
After studying winemaking in Avize and working with Romaric Chavy of Meursault’s Domaine Chavy-Chouet, Julien joined Max taking over their father’s estate in 2020.
Based in the village of Festigny, the brothers farm 45 plots across 15ha in the Vallée de la Marne – the heartland of Pinot Meunier. With its amphitheatre shape and dense forested covering, locals compare this unique hillside terroir to Burgundy’s Corton Grand Cru.
Introducing an organic, parcellaire approach, along with careful use of oak (sourced from Romaric Chavy and Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey) for vinification and élevage, Julien crafts full-bodied, gastronomic Champagnes with exquisite balance.
