Valentin Morel Chardonnay 'Les Trouillots'


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2021

Valentin Morel originally trained in international law before being bitten by the wine bug and moving to the Alsace to learn winemaking under the influence of Pierre Frick among others. He returned to Jura in 2014 to take over the family vineyard and now cultivates 6 hectares of 40-45 year old vines.

Chardonnay from the prime south facing Les Trouillots vineyard planted in 1980 in a mix of gray marl and limestone scree. Direct pressed and aged for 12 months in old oak barrels before bottling without sulphur or other additions, this is an exemplary Jura Chardonnay with stunning finesse and precision.
