A blend of 80 year old Gamay, Poulsard, Trousseau and other Indigenous Jurassien varieties. Before all the indigenous varieties were ripped up to plant Poulsard and Trousseau, this is likely what red wines would have been like in the region. The grapes are co-fermented and raised in tank. A little weightier, with a rusticity on the palate that cries out for some charcuterie, this breaks the mould of what Jura reds can be.

Raphaël Monnier’s wines are some of the most iconic of the region. His interest in winemaking began some 20 years ago, first by working on a few small negociant projects with good friend Jean Baptiste Menigoz of Domaine Bottes Rouges. The drive from Arbois winds through forest and field before arriving at the Monnier family home. The cellar, built into the side of the house, is barely large enough to contain the handful of barrels and tanks needed for each year’s harvest.
