Les Dolomies Bordel C'est Bon Trousseau
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.
The wine and label are a tribute (hommage) to a close friend Gabi who passed away and was a successful cartoonist for the newspapers Le Monde and Le Canard Enchainé. Gabi's line 'bordel c’est bon' can be translated into 'god that's good' (polite version), and indeed it is! The grapes come from Les Combes, fully destalked and vinified without SO2, this is juicy and joyful with a lovely peppery black fruit.
