< Our Wines < Our White Wines


Blend of White Gamay (the former name of Chardonnay), Poulsard and Savagnin, planted together in the vines, aged in oak barrels for 6 months with no added SO2. A fruity wine.

These vines are “complantées“, meaning planted together, an old wine-growing method whereby a mixture of grape varieties are planted side by side in the same plot.

The Vines

Geography & Terroir

Val de Sorne steephead valley.

Southwest exposure on limestone Lias marls with some scree.

Cultivation Techniques

Biodynamic vines inspected and certified by Demeter France since 2003: use of horn dung (500P), silica (501) and herbal tea treatments.

These techniques preserve the indigenous yeasts which contribute to the authenticity and purity of the wines.

Exclusively hand-picked, with sorting in the vineyard and rapid transport in small containers so as not to damage the grapes, fermented without S02.

Grape Variety

The three main Jura grape varieties planted together in the same plot: 40% Gamay Blanc (local selection of Chardonnay), 40% Poulsard, 20% Savagnin.

The Wine


Slow pressing of the 3 grape varieties together. Fermentation and ageing in oak barrels with no added SO2, regular topping-up and bottling seven months after harvest on a “flower” day according to the lunar calendar.

No added yeast, no chaptalisation, no oenological additives, bottles sealed with natural fire-branded corks.

Characteristics of the Vintage

2019: warm, dry winter and spring, growth was initially rapid but late frost twice on 14th April and 7th May, hail in June and July, and scorching episodes in June and July slowed everything down. A little rain around 15th August was beneficial and the bunches matured well. Low yield but high quality.

Alcohol: 13%
Total SO2: 30mg/L
Harvested on 17/09/2019

Tasting Notes

Pale gold colour, floral and fruity nose blending the different aromas and characters of the three grape varieties.

Food & Wine pairing

To be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif with starters, shellfish or fish.
