2020 Domaine Nøvice Merci Poulsard14436
WINEMAKER: Yves Roy-Salomon
REGION: Jura, FR
Made from 100% Poulsard grapes sourced from the Trouillot Batard plot in Poligny, this wine undergoes a three-week maceration and spends a short time in old barrels. The plot was cared for by Valantine Morel for two years, highlighting the collaborative spirit within the domaine. No sulphur, no additives, just pure juice!
The wine presents a rich and slightly structured character bursting with fruity goodness. Its aroma is one of heightened florals, like hibiscus and rose tea. Striking a balance between wildness and restraint, the wine embodies complexity. As you delve into its layers, you'll uncover hints of mushrooms and earthiness, leading to a finish with traces of saltiness and savoury notes.
Jura native, Yves Roy- Salomon, settled back in his home town of Poligny with his partner Christelle in 2019 and set up their Domaine Nøvice.

Yves bought 5 hectares of vines in 2014, retrained in oenology at Montmorot and works for Valentin Morel at Les Pieds sur Terre. One of the best growers in Poligny. There he has crafted his trade along with the help of other Jura guns. All at the age of 50.
