Magnum Côtes du Jura Blanc ‘Les Cèdres‘ - Chardonnay

Review

After consecutive vintages of losing large portions of his harvest, Jean-François was forced to innovate to make more wine. In partnership with his sister Anne, he went to friends in Alsace, Beaujolais, and Savoie to source more fruit. Anne and Jean-François even went so far as to purchase vines in the Beaujolais. Each Vin de France cuvée is a blend of estate fruit from the Jura and purchased (or estate) fruit from another region, thus allowing Jean-François to apply his savoir-faire in winemaking with indigenous grape varieties from the Jura to create a new and unique line of wines. All of the vineyards contributing to this project are farmed organically.


Côtes du Jura Blanc “Les Cèdres”:
• Aged 3 years on fine lees in 350-L barrels
• Biodynamic methodology (aeration of the soil, herbal infusions, natural composts, cover crops, planting in accordance with the lunar calendar) used to stimulate the natural immune system of the vine

Whites:

• Whole cluster fermentation à l’ancienne

• No racking of the must

• All whites go through malolactic fermentation

• No sulfur dioxide added during vinification, only a touch at bottling

• Aged in demi-muids of 300-L and 400-L, as well as 228-L barrels

• Bottled in the summer, two years after the harvest
