WINEMAKER: Alice Bouvot
REGION: Jura, FR
VARIETAL: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
"A blend of roughly three parts of Pinot Noir and one of Chardonnay, planted next to one another over limestone and marl in ‘En Arces’ in Arbois. The two varieties were destemmed and infused together for two months before being pressed and returned to cuve for a year of élevage. A vivid cherry-red in the glass, it is featherweight on the palate, marrying gentle notes of red berries, blood orange and minerals to beautiful effect." - Tutto
