Winemaker Patrice Béguet, born in the Jura, gave up Paris city life and returned to the Jura countryside with his wife, Caroline Hughes. They purchased heritage vineyards on great terroir, and set up a small winery under their house in Mesnay adopting sustainable viticulture practices and winemaking techniques. The fruit is taken from three grand terroirs Les Corvées, Les Saules and Côte de Feule. Patrice has produced a delicious wine with fine structure. 8 months élevage in fûts and demi-muids of which 50% are new. Low yields are a trait of Patrice’s viticulture and this wine is harvested at 30hl/ha of 85% Trousseau and 15% Ploussard with only 1000 bottles made. Indigenous yeast fermentation, no sulphites or filtration and bottled with a protective CO2 spritz that freshens the wine on entry to the palate.
