ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Domaine des Ronces Cotes des Jura Pinot Noir
Domaine des Ronces Cotes des Jura Pinot Noir has aromas of small red and black fruits with secondary notes of raspberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry, supported by spicy notes. The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted in the field. The grapes are destemmed on a wicker de-stemmer and are worked by punching down during fermentation. The fermentation is spontaneous with native yeast. No fining or filtration and a minimal amount of sulfur at bottling.
About Domaine des Ronces
A family-owned estate since 1950, Domaine des Ronces is located in the little-known southern regions of the Jura, Sud Revermont. The domaine was established by George Mazier who planted exclusively Chardonnay on his 1-hectare plot. Since then, his son, Michel has increased the holdings of the estate to 6 hectares while planting the red grapes Trousseau, Poulsard, and Pinot Noir along with the white grape Savagnin. The estate began farming organically and biodynamically in 2010. In 2016, Demeter certified them biodynamic. At present, their small portion of Jura, in the town of Orbagna, flies under the radar. Indeed, although the terroir is well suited to grape growing, dairy farming continues to be a profitable business in the region, inhibiting the growth of new vineyards.
As with so many of their peers further North in the Jura, the Mazier family prefers to work as naturally as possible in the winery. Kevin Mazier, the third generation at the estate, has taken over from his father who introduced him to this approach which dictates native yeast ferments, minimal filtration, and low sulfur levels.
