Born in Champagne in a grower’s family, Juliette Alips rapidly found her passion.
With the mentorship of her close cousins, Raphaël and Vincent Bérêche, she discovered and learned all the ins and outs of producing champagne, from farming, to vinification, tasting and blending.
Graduated from oenology school in Beaune in 2020, Juliette already has a few vintages under her belt with acclaimed producers like Louis Latour in Bourgogne, G.D. Vajra in Piedmont, and closer to home, Roederer Estate where she spent more than a year learning from this iconic maison.
Now, with the help of her two cousins, she is starting this new adventure with Domaine Les Monts Fournois. Located in the north part of the Montagne de Reims, in the sub-area called La Grande Montagne, the Premier Cru Les Monts Fournois will be the focus of the domaine. Until the first vintage of that wine releases in a couple of years, the Domaine is offering a very small selection of vintage Grand Cru Champagnes. Using the extensive and strong family grower relationships developed by her cousins, Juliette is able to source tiny quantities of superb champagne from iconic vineyards to craft these exceptional wines.
We are pleased to present this inaugural offering of 3 grands crus: a 2015 Côte Grand Cru from the Côtes des Blancs, a 2016 Côte from the Oger Grand Cru in the Côtes des Blancs and a few, highly coveted cases of 2012 Montagne Grand Cru from the Montagne de Reims area.
