Françoise Feuillat-Juillot is the daughter of the highly regarded Mercurey producer, Michel Juillot. She grew up amongst the vines and barrels of her family domaine, before studying in Paris and completing a degree in oenology at Dijon University. She now has 14 hectares of wonderfully sited, mainly old vines, spread amongst 13 different premier crus in the viticultural amphitheatre that is Montagny. She practices a very strict and meticulous form of sustainable viticulture, works the soils mechanically and all grapes are picked by hand.
