Estate: The Badoz family has been making wine in the heart of the Jura region of eastern France since 1659; Benoit Badoz is the 10th generation to head the family domaine. His 10 hectares of vineyards are farmed with minimal intervention and organic methods, with a focus on encouraging and protecting the natural biodiversity.
Winemaking: Vines are on slopes between 300-350 meters in elevation with Roussots soils of a “mix of blue, grey and red marne over a clay and limestone subsoil”. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts.
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour, with aromas of blackberry, smoky pine and violet. Silky layers of black currant, plum, pomegranate, blackberry and eucalyptus are framed by hearty tannins and fresh acidity. Black currant and flinty minerality infuse the velvety finish. Suave, engaging and a great value.
