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.

Serious Chardonnay from a special plot of 60 year old vines planted on heavy and clayey red marlstone. Lime pith, bruised apples, wild honey and proving bread dough.
