Chardonnay from a limestone soil vineyard in Arbois. All of the whites from the Ratapoil cellar see some ageing in barrel. As always this is wonderfully poised, a balance of richness and searing acidity. This will only get better with time in the cellar.

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.
