Domaine Des Marnes Blanches Chardonnay 'Les Molates'
Natives of the Jura, both Pauline and Géraud’s families owned tiny plots used to make wine for home consumption and spending time in the vines in their childhood was enough to give them the wine bug. They met while studying winemaking in Dijon and created Domaine des Marnes Blanches when they returned to the Jura in 2006. They have farmed organically from the word go and have added small parcels of high-quality vines along the way to reach a total of 12ha today.
Les Molates is an assemblage of different parcels of around 35 year old vines grown in marl and limestone soils. Vinified and aged in foudres, this is a taut and well-balanced wine, with zesty lemon fruit, hay and baking spice aromas.
