Since 1865, the spirit of Mommessin has consisted of a Beaujolais soul and a Burgundian heart that define a style that is fruity, powerful and very close to its roots.

The Mommessin spirit stands out for the alliance of two winegrowing regions - Burgundy and the Beaujolais, two cultures that make our wines distinctive and appealing.

The name of Juliénas come from « Jules Caesar ». The vineyard is situated north to Beaujolais vineyard , both at the limit of Gamay area and at the boundary of Chardonnay grape variety area.

The vineyards of Juliénas are, with Saint-Amour, the northern cru of the Beaujolais area, in the very South of Burgundy. They spread over the villages of Juliénas, Jullié, Emeringes and Pruzilly.


The Juliénas cru peaks at 466m. Its slopes, often greater than 15%, contain very little granite. The main parent materials of the Juliénas soils are essentially composed of Diorites, hard bluish rocks with clearly visible crystals, microdiorites with a thinner paste and dark, more schistose formations. This is the vintage where the surface texture is the most clayey (15% on average).
