"Vingt millésimes après son arrivée, Jean Boxler a lentement fait évoluer les réglages pour aujourd'hui vinifier à égalité avec l'élite de l'Alsace. Les vignes sont splendidement situées, aussi bien sur le Sommerberg ou sur le Brand, deux terroirs en riesling. La viticulture est exigeante et soignée, et les élevages adaptés aux vins et aux millésimes. Ici, aucune fausse note, quel que soit le cépage." 5*/5 Bettane+Desseauve
Guillaume Quénard is now the leader of the estate. He is beginning to make his mark with more straightforward, fine wines of superb balance.
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.
The Domaine Belluard now covers some twenty hectares at an altitude of 450 metres and is cultivated on very steep slopes. The soils are very varied and bring all the richness to these biodynamically cultivated wines (since 2001), red ferruginous clays alongside limestone scree, glacial sediments...
Eric Bordelet is the reference when you want to taste an exceptional cider or perry.
François Chidaine is now one of the greatest winemakers in the Loire region, and by extension in France, recognised by his peers for his talent as a winemaker but also for his mastery of biodynamic principles.
The vineyard of the brothers David and Frédéric, the Giac brothers as they are known, is made up of about ten hectares overlooking the Isère valley.
Jean-François Ganevat, known as Fanfan, returned to his roots in 1998, to the Combe de Rotalier, after having been cellar master at the Domaine Morey in Chassagne Montrachet. Each year he makes around forty cuvées from parcel selections of 25 different grape varieties on 9 hectares of clay, schist and marl, with very old vines, 80 years old for the yellow one and a hundred years old for others.
"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 must of the appellation with a natural Cerdon, greedy and complex at the same time. Ideal with a red fruit crumble.
A great reference in Cerdon du Bugey.
The Domaine André et Mireille Tissot of Bénédicte and Stéphane Tissot was created in 1962 and is located in Montigny-les-Arsures, a small town close to Arbois, the capital of Jura wines. Stéphane Tissot and his wife Bénédicte officially took over the estate in 1990.
Very nice Vouvray, biodynamic and at angelic prices...
