A Dive Into Altaber

Julien Altaber’s expressions of Burgundy cut right through with personality. He came up under the wings of Catherine and Dominique Derain, assisting in the cellar and vineyard, and began making his own wine in the basement with a forward thinking, natural style. Residing in Saint Aubin, little by little Julien was able to purchase (and source) plots he felt were worthy, unique, and interesting. The wines themselves are complex and satisfying, drifting between rustic beauties and elegant rapscallions. Charming, intriguing, and exciting to drink. Roast a bird and pop some Altaber!
