Scrummy little wine made from Ploussard from prized lieu-dits La Touraize and Curoulet. The vines are 30-50 years old and grow on grey marl. Light and silky in colour, almost like peering through red cellophane. Beautiful clean nose, with dewey= roses, spice, blueberries, cherries, cocoa and salt – all with a certain depth. Clean, no funk. Detailed and alive. For Jura drinkers craving more consistency.

André-Jean Morin and his wife Héléana have been only making wine under this label for 10 years, but André-Jean’s family has been farming and selling fruit in Arbois since 1704. They look after 12 hectares in the tiny town of Arbois, the oldest vines planted in 1939. Some of the most prized fruit in all the Jura, fabled and famed by other local vignerons who purchase from the couple. Jura nerds, get some!
