Les Dolomies is the winemaking project of Céline and Steve Gormally. Having been trained at the Domaines Labet, Badoz, and St-Pierre, they bring a wealth of experience to their tiny plots in Passenans, Jura, from which they make otherworldly Jura wines full of both elegance and power. Wild yeast fermentation and bottling without fining or filtration have always been the norm here. From 2020 no sulphur is used during vinification and ageing, and the wines have gained in clarity and depth.

Located in Passenans, the combe des Grandvaux is adjacent to and as qualitative as the terroir Les Combes. Naturally low yielding 50 year old vines grow on brown and red marls, giving a tightly wound, dense wine with lip-smacking spicy flavours, and a chalky almost chewy finish.
