A Walk through the Vines

On the edge of the first Jura plateau, discover Montaigu and its bird’s-eye view of Lons-le-Saunier. The village was the childhood home of Rouget de Lisle, the composer of the Marseillaise, and was also the residence of Captain Lacuzon, a hero of Franche-Comté’s independence from the French in the 17th century.
On a vantage point formed by a rocky spur, Montaigu separates and overlooks two steephead valleys (Revigny and Vernantois) whose marly slopes, at the foot of limestone cliffs, provide ideal conditions for winegrowing.
