Basic Info

Julien Braud’s talents have been highlighted most recently in a project created by NYC wine mogul Patrick Cappiello: Forty Ounce Wines, which merges fun, tradition and style. Current offerings include the 2016 Forty Ounce Rosé and the 2016 Forty Ounce Muscadet. Quantities are limited, so be sure to get them while you can! At the young age of 29 years old, Julien is one of only a handful of the next generation of winemakers in the region. Julien works entirely organically and is recently fully certified. He also incorporates biodynamic approaches. He uses horses in his vineyards to minimize soil compaction, hand harvests, uses only natural yeasts for fermentation after a gentle press, and ages the wines on their lees in glass-lined, underground cement vats. A truly quality-minded approach that has resulted in wines of complexity, texture and balance.
