Domaine des Marnes Blanches En Quatre Vis
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.
A selection of west-facing 40yo vines in shallow Lias marls in Cesancey. A stunning age-worthy wine that went through extended élevage, it was aged in fûts for a year and then foudres for the second year. Exceptional balance, real class, and a spicier nose compared to Les Molates. On the palate, it offers stewed citrus fruits and gentle bitters on a lengthy finish.
