Description

A cuvée in homage to Frank Zappa, and his hyper-energetic song, just like this wine! Valentin Morel returned home after a few years practicing law to reconnect with his family’s farming roots. He took over the 6-hectare estate of his father Jean-Luc More planted around the village of Poligny in the heart of Jura.

 

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay from 40-year-old organic vines planted on the clay-limestone terroir of Les Trouillots.

Harvested by hand. Natural winemaking: direct pressing, fermentation and aging in 228-liter barrels for one year, without new oak. Valentin macerates his hybrid grape skins (after they had been pressed) in the wine for two weeks, followed by one more year year of aging in vats.

 

Tasting Notes:  Highly complex, with notes of peach, flowers and almonds. A hyper-aromatic "tinted white", off the beaten track, with a very fine aromatic persistence.
