In the town of Arbois, you will find this small domaine run by husband and wife team Michel-Henri and Françoise Ratte. Vineyards have been in Françoise’s family for generations but they have always been under the shackles of a fruitier, selling their fruit under contract until now. In 2015 they broke free, not an easy feat considering you are usually signed for life here, and started making wine for themselves from some of the best terroirs in Arbois.
From a single vineyard plot in AOC Arbois. 60 year old vines on Marnes à Gryphées soil. Harvest by hand and slow horizontal hydraulic press into stainless steel for wild fermentation. Upbringing in old oak barrels from Meursault and bottled the following year without filtration and very little sulphur. - GM Imports
