True artisans of the land, Fabrice and Valérie Closset-Gaziaux acquired 5 hectares of Jura vineyards in 2008 which they immediately converted to organic and biodynamic. Their backgrounds are in Earth Sciences and were advisers to growers in the Loire valley on organic practices. They have always loved working in vineyards and when the opportunity presented itself, with a retired vigneron in Gevingey, they jumped and didn’t look back.
100% chardonnay in AOC Cotes du Jura on shallow depth limestone clay over limestone/silica bedrock. Manual harvest and gentle press then into stainless steel for wild fermentation. Upbringing in 50% old Burgundy barrels and 50% neutral demi-muids for 6 months and bottled unfiltered and unfined. Very well crafted wine, beautiful acid line and loads of interest. Last very well open for hours or days even. - GM Imports
