Convinced of the unique Jura terroir’s potential, we have identified in the last years specific plots where vines were re-planted. Besides the traditional Jura appellations, we particularly concentrate ourselves in making wines of great freshness, with an airy, elegant and very mineral character.
The Pinot Noir grapes were handpicked and sorted on sorting tables at their arrival at the winery. Then they were put in thermos-regulated stainless steel tank for a total maceration of 12 days, followed regularly throughout the fermentation with occasional pumping and stirring. Then the press and drop juices were assembled and withdrawn for malolactic fermentation on fine lies. 100% of the cuvee was then placed into 2 to 3-years oak casks for 6 month ageing period allowing to enlarge the aromatic palette. Bottling in June with a light filtration.
Pleasant, straight and fine, with delicate small wild berries notes.
It is a round, supple, velvety and greedy wine with light rounded tannins and a very present fruit.
