Beautiful fruit from the Sous la Roche lieu-dit. Having decided that she would not top up the barrels for this vintage, Catherine struggled to get a flor (a thin layer of yeast on the surface of wine). After a conversation with oxi-master Jacques Puffeney, she was gifted a barrel from his cellar. 7 days later, after the wine was transferred into his old barrel, there was a beautiful layer of flor! The resulting wine has a delicate oxidative character and, with quite low alcohol for a wine of this style, is exceptionally fresh and nuanced. Perhaps our favourite of the release.

Domaine de la Loue

Catherine Hannoun is based in Port Lesney, a small commune about 15 minutes north of Arbois which exudes the tranquility many associate with the hills of Jura. Having worked for many years in film, it was clear after working with Emmanuel Houillon that this was the area for her, and in 2009 bought a small parcel of vines and her current cellar. She now has 3.2ha of vineyards of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Trousseau and Pinot Noir around Marnoz and Arbois.
