In the sub-Alpine Jura, 2018 was one of those very rare vintage where more-or-less everything went right - no late frosts, no extreme heat, some, but not too much rain - we could go on. The result of this for a winemaker like Valentin is wines of pristine fruit and structure that drink as well from day one as they will in another decade. This is oine for the ages.

Valentin Morel

Valentin Morel runs an estate responsible for making some of the most lifted, pure and exciting wines in the Jura. His family have deep roots in the small town of Poligny and it was his grandfather and father who first planted vines amongst the rolling hills and verdant forests that surround the town. Valentin joined them in 2014, after studying international law and training with the Alsace’s legendary Jean-Pierre Frick and Bruno Schueller, and he has shifted the whole production towards biodynamics and away from using excessive sulphur.
