Recap of our recent visit to Julien Frémont's.
"There are much more conformist ways to make cider. The way I learned, there was an oenologist who swung by the cellar all the time: he'd taste, then tell me put this many grams of that and that many grams of this… I quickly felt a disconnect working this way, because it was some guy giving me the same recipe over and over. This isn't my approach towards existence, and I got bored very fast. I then started meeting people like the vignerons we were just talking about, and I realized that I was completely free to make cider the way I wanted to make it."
Great interview with Julien Frémont. Read up on the history of his farm, his connection to Jean Foillard and the Dive Bouteille, taking over the Parisian scene and much more over on his profile.
Next up, Summer Log 02 with Alice and Olivier De Moor!!!!!!
