A Wine That
has a subtle spice to it; white pepper and cloves with some earthiness and a smoky edge. Super fresh and light on its feet yet also with a ton of complexity, this is a real crowd-pleaser. Due to its delicate nature, it also makes the best wine for food pairing — think bao buns or ramen — so get stuck in and explore!

Where and How?
This comes from the Trousseau variety in the Côtes-du-Jura.
The wine was fermented naturally with whole bunches, and a short maceration period of just ten to twelve days, as this was a warm vintage. This gentle winemaking enabled the winemakers to make a light and floral wine despite the warm temperatures.
The Winemaker: Les Marnes Blanches
Les Marnes Blanches, meaning ‘white marl’ in French — a nod to the famous soils of the area — is run by Pauline and Gérard Fromont; both of whom grew up in the Jura and whose families owned tiny plots in the region, from which they’d make their own wines for drinking at home. They met while studying winemaking, and founded their domaine together in 2006.
Since the beginning they have worked organically, and have collected vineyards throughout the years to bring them to their 12 hectares today. Winemaking is hands-off, with low or no sulphites, and the wines are beautiful, pure expressions of their varied soil types and Jura varieties.
