Le Clos des Grives Macvin Du Jura
Grapes: Chardonnay, Marc
Le Clos des Grives is a legendary Jura domaine and the very first to be certified organic in the region way back in 1968. Today there are 4 hectares of prime south/southwest facing vines growing in marl limestone at 330-350m above sea level, all harvested by hand and made into no less than 10 different cuvées.
Macvin is a liqueur made from a blend of one-third Franche-Comté marc (aged for a minimum of two years in barrels) with two-thirds Chardonnay grape juice taken before fermentation. It is then aged for a further year in barrel before bottling. A great accompaniment to both cheese and dessert with caramelised fruit, grape and spice notes.
