Founded by Jules Desjourneys in 2007, the winery has gained a reputation for its single-vineyard expressions of Pouilly-Fuissé and its limited production of fine Beaujolais wines.
The estate focuses on small-scale production, advocating biodynamic farming practices and prioritising organic and sustainable methods in the vineyard. The vineyards are carefully managed, with low yields and a focus on expressing the unique terroir of each site.
Pouilly-Fuissé is one of the primary wines produced. The grapes are sourced from old-vine vineyards in the Macon region, specifically from top-quality sites within the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. These vineyards are known for their limestone-rich soils and ideal sun exposure, resulting in wines with depth, complexity, and a distinct mineral character.
Jules Desjourneys also produces limited quantities of Beaujolais wines, focusing on the crus of Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent. These wines showcase the potential of Gamay, the primary grape variety of the Beaujolais region. With careful vineyard management and a minimalist winemaking approach, Jules Desjourneys aims to produce Beaujolais wines that exhibit depth, structure, and age-ability, highlighting each vineyard's unique qualities.
