Domaine Des Marnes Blanches Cotes Du Jura Pinot Noir
Grapes: Pinot Noir
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.
This is their whole-bunch Pinot Noir that undergoes semi-carbonic maceration for 10 days before ageing in old Burgundy barrels and bottling without SO2. Pale in colour, it's juicy, fresh and vigorous with high-toned red fruit and herbal aromas underpinned with wet leaves and spice.
