Burgundy From Above: A Vineyard Tour with Julien Cruchandeau

We came upon a bucolic scene in January when we wound our way up from Nuits-Saint-Georges to the tiny village of Chaux to visit with Julien Cruchandeau. A former DJ turned vigneron, Julien has created quite a stir with the wines he creates in the cellar just below his family home.

We joined Julien and his two young children for an afternoon in his Les Cabottes vineyard in the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. And while the kids scrambled onto the old stone hut that holds watch over the vines, we explored this stunning site with Julien telling us its story along the way.

The 2015s from Domaine Julien Cruchandeau have just landed here in the United States, so we found it timely offer this view of Les Cabottes from the sky in the latest installment of our drone vineyard tour series. Enjoy!
