Julien Mareschal founded his estate in 2003, at the age of 23. Julien had no family wine connections in the Jura. He hailed from a cereal-growing family and studied agriculture initially but followed up with a winemaking diploma in Dijon and work experience in Burgundy and Bordeaux. He also worked for short spells in the Jura. Having decided that he wanted to set himself up in the Jura, he took over 3.5ha of mainly 25-year-old vines in some of the best sites of Pupillin, along with leased space for a winery. Having worked his vineyards in a reasoned approach (lutte raisonnée) from the start, in 2009 he converted half his parcels to either organic or biodynamic and converted his entire estate to biodynamic viticulture in 2012.

Pinot Noir ‘Sous la Roche is grown at 500m alt, on south-west facing, 20% slopes. The grapes are manually de-stemmed, they undergo a semi-carbonic maceration for 20. The wine rests for 10 months in 2/3 year old barrels.Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with zero sulphur.
