Arbois Pinot Noir! Great line of acidity to this one, as well as all the delicious dark forest fruits you'd expect from, say, a Côte de Nuits Burgundy. Like all great Jura reds there is a real stony inflection coming through from the white marl and chalk soils. The wine sees 8 months in old oak before bottling, which broadens things out somewhat. Really fantastic stuff.

Fabrice Dodane joined this estate in 1989 and began conversion to organic farming in 2002. He also works biodynamically. Situated on a beautiful limestone hill, at the foot of which a chapel houses a statue of the saint of the same name.
