Champagne Cléobuline Julie Dufour is an extra brut Champagne made from 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay grown in certified organic vineyards.
Julie Dufour, sister of Charles Dufour, a Champagne producer in the Côte des Bar, returned to Landreville, her native land, to take over the family estate which represents just over 4 hectares of vineyards. Julie lived many years in Paris but was drawn back by "an almost natural need to return to her roots" as she puts it.
"Cléobuline", her old first name, is her first Cuvée.
Today, Julie's goal is to pursue two professional projects: to continue making her Champagne and to renovate a barn to accommodate her loyal customers.
