Domaine Des Marnes Blanches Savagnin 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.
Made in the topped up style and aged in old foudre for 11 months, the Molates Savagnin is an exemplar of the style - intense, concentrated and long with classic preserved lemon flavours and a noticeably saline and tangy finish.
