Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Domaine Ratte Clos Maire jura, france
$75

In the town of Arbois, you will find this small domaine run by husband and wife team Michel-Henri and Françoise Ratte.
Clos Maire is the result of the vinification of the red Trousseau and Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyard. The grapes are directly de-stemmed to the vine, manually via crible, and the berries arrive intact in the vat room: a semi-carbonic maceration gives this wine a lot of freshness and an exceptional fruitiness. Raised in old burgundy barrels and bottled without filtration.
