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% Pinot Noir in Cotes du Jura AOC on limestone clay soils. The fruit was manually harvested beginning of September, fully destemmed and into stainless for fermentation with indigenous yeast. 6 months elevage in neutral demi-muids and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Crunchy black cherry fruit, star anise, violets, earth and game. There is some pine resin and spruce, chalky tannin structure and a nice sweet savoury balance with quite a bit depth on the palate. Very juicy acid drive and really delicious. " GM Imports
