It is interested in, and he spent two years of his life in Epernay, where he studied how to make the best champagne. The knowledge gained and he used in creating the Alsatian sparkling wines. This experiment was a success. Everything was perfect: the favorable climate, rich soil and natural Sparkling Pinot Blanc. In addition, Julien invented for his bottle of wine a special form (a bit elongated and stretched), which to this day distinguishes Alsace wine from others. First, his invention met with a wave of incomprehension conservatives. However, after the successful demonstration of the uniqueness of his invention, Julien was awarded a silver medal with the inscription "For particularly successful achievement."
