Thérèse and Michel Riouspeyrous, who are now quietly handing over the estate to their sons Iban and Théo, can be proud of their success on their family estate. They have become the reference for Basque wines and perhaps even for the whole of the South West.
"Located near Jongieux in the picturesque village of Aimavigne, at the foot of the vertiginous Marestel hillside, the Dupasquier family has been cultivating their vines for five generations with good reason (grassing down, no synthetic products). (...) The Roussette Marestel is the great wine of the estate, capable of improving over 30 to 40 years of ageing in good vintages with an astonishing diversity of flavours, without losing its freshness. With a little rebalancing, the estate could quickly climb up our hierarchy..."

"Julien Labet, with the help of his brother and sister, has taken over his father Alain's vineyards, which are now grouped together under a single entity: Domaine Labet. (...) Numerous micro-parcels (between 15 and 80 ares, often from old vines) are vinified by Julien, both in white (all ouillés) and in red, the latter being perhaps the most exceptional to be born today in the region. Sulphur levels are very low but the balance is impossible to fault in the wines. The estate is now one of the spearheads of the Jura revival." RVF Guide 2018

A true enthusiast by nature and in perpetual quest for excellence and perfection, he began in the 1970s to dig his own cellars in Bouze-Les-Beaune in Burgundy, where he would age his precious nectars.
