Julie and Xavier Gonet-Médeville are, in many ways, the first couple of French wines. Julie and Xavier have pieced together tiny properties of special significance throughout Bordeaux over the past several years and their prestige only continues to rise. Although relatively new to the wine world as a husband-wife team, they each come from a rich line of vignerons and winemakers.
Crafting world-class wine could be said to be part of their genetic makeup. Julie descends from the Château Gilette clan, famous with Sauternes lovers around the world, while Xavier finds his roots among the growers of Champagne’s famous Le Mesnil.
It seems that whatever project they put their passion towards, the results are always incredible and today’s examples are no exception.
