CÔTES DU JURA - PINOT NOIR
Several generations have been necessary to patiently built one of the largest and greatest estates in the area, focused on key appellations such as Château-Chalon, l’Étoile and Arbois. The Domaine MAIRE & Fils covers nowadays 234 hectares of vines producing all the area grapes varieties.
In fact, Pinot Noir is often blended with other varieties in the Jura vineyard, for its flavour and cellaring potential. Planted since the 15th century on gravelly soil, it is often the first vine variety to ripen in the Jura.
Trousseau is an old local, latefruiting and demanding vine variety from the Franche-Comté area. Trousseau requires light, gravelly, warm soil. It brings the peppery and spicy flavours to the wine.
The restructuring of the vines contributes to the harmony of our cuvée: the young vines bring the exuberance, the freshness and the acidity. While the older specimens bring the structure and character.
