At 16, Julien did his first wine harvest and fell in love. After a winemaking 'internship,' he found himself under the guidance of Catherine and Dominique Derain where he learned about organic and biodynamic winemaking. In 2007, Julien purchased grapes with the support and equipment of the Derain's and began Domaine Sextant. Today, he has a winery and cellar in St. Aubin, as well as half a hectare of his own vines.
