High-toned, vital Chardonnay from a small plot of 20 year old vines planted in predominantly limestone soils. 2017 was, after huge problems in the spring with frost, a vintage defined by a long, hot, dry summer which has left its mark here in the shape of a relatively greedy 13.5% alcohol but no little acidity to liven things up.

Les Bottes Rouges

Domaine Les Bottes Rouges (The Red Boots) was started by Arbois-based special need teacher Jean-Baptiste Menigoz after becoming infatuated with natural winemaking through his friend Raphael Monnier (one half of LOW-favourite Jura growers Ratapoil). He has steadily increased the size of the estate to 7 hectares since his first vintage and has now been joined Florien Snuverik, a Dutch national similarly obsessed with Jurassien natural winemaking, and together they continue this estate’s well-established experimental bent.
