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% late harvest Savagnin from the Grey marl of Les Molattes in Gevigney. Manual harvest and into stainless steel for fermentation with indigenous yeast. It is then transferred to 228L barrels and aged sous voile for 7 years and bottled in 620mL Clavelins. Very delicious vin Jaune and very giving. Not at all austere like many young Vin Jaune are at release. All the curry spices and salinity tang you want from a Vin Jaune but just so drinkable at this young age. Will last days or weeks open and only gets better." GM Imports
