About Maison Piron
AboutJulien Revillon was born in Lantignié, the village tipped to become the 11th cru of Beaujolais. He traces his vigneron vocation through family roots as winegrowers in Saint-Amour, his sommelier uncle as well as his grandfather, a starred chef in Belleville in the 1970s. Julien returned to the vineyards after a detour in finance where he looked after, of course, the accounts of winegrowers. After working at Jean-Luc Colombo in Cornas, he wanted to get even closer to his Beaujolais origins. In 2013, he joined forces with 14th-generation grower Dominique Piron. Their shared vision ensured that these wines celebrated the myriad charms of Gamay and the nuanced soils of the region's best vineyards. With Julien at the helm, this estate honours tradition alongside an open-minded dynamism that ensures it delivers all the joys of Beaujolais to its worldwide fans.
