CHATEAU VILLERAMBERT JULIEN
The vineyard of Chateau Villerambert-Julien, created in 1852 by the Julien family, extends over 59 hectares of hills, all classified as AOC Minervois, between Carcassonne and Narbonne, on the edge of precipitous garrigues. Its completely unique terroir, composed of veins of schist and crushed pink marble, is fully ex-posed to the south. The grape varieties typical of the region, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Carignan, matched to the specific terroir, bring to Ch. Villerambert-Julien a palette of aromas worthy of the greatest wmes.
The greatest care is given to cultivation methods (high density of planting, severe pruning, conscientious training on wires, plowing, organic fertilizer) as well as to vinification methods (very strict controls of ma-turity, choice ofterroir, destemming, attention to hygiene at harvest time, long cuvaisons, hot and cold temperature control, elevage in stainless steel and barriques of different ages).

Cuvee Opera Rose, on its way to becoming a great classic because of its fruit and its length in the mouth.
Cuvee Opera Rouge, for its finesse, its fruit and its excellent rapport qualite/prix.
Chateau Villerambert-Julien, issuing from a selection of the oldest vines and the best terroirs, which already position it as a grand cru of the Languedoc, with its concentration, finesse, and its great richness of aromas.
