About the Wine

Méli-Mélo, ‘hodgepodge’ in French, is a mix of a little bit of everything harvested in 2022. All the grapes come from varied terroirs in Montigny-lès-Arsures, Molamboz and Arbois. 2022 had an uncommonly warm and dry growing season. The vintage was one of the most generous in recent memory and one that was much needed in these parts. The resulting wines are wonderfully expressive, open and pure, bursting with ripe red fruit. 

Aromatic and lifted on the nose, on the palate there's an explosion of crushed red berries, minerals and spice with an underlying earthy wild edge. Around a third is a direct press of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Trousseau and Gamay, whilst the balance is made up of destemmed Ploussard, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Trousseau, Savagnin, Chardonnay and ancient varieties, which are left to infuse in the pressed juice for three months. After pressing, the wine is returned to cuve to rest until the following spring. Jura in a glass. 

About Amélie Vuillet & Sébastien Jacques

Amélie and Sébastien are producing some of the most vibrant and exciting wines in the Jura. Both natives of the region, between them they have worked with some of the region's great vignerons- Brignot, Bornard, Overnoy and Tissot. So, it’s safe to say they have learned from some of the best. They have just over one hectare of vines spread over tiny parcels around their home in Molamboz, as well as in Arbois and Montigny-lès-Arsures. Their work is focused on having the utmost respect for nature, with biodiversity being cherished and treatments rarely being used. They work the soil by horseback, while in the cellar work is gentle with no temperature control and using gravity alone to move the wine from vessel to vessel. In doing this, they are creating wines that are as true an expression of place as possible. Wines of this kind of purity don’t come along every day.
