Information about domain François Rousset-Martin

Originally from the Jura, François Rousset-Martin took up the family domain in 2007. Trained in oenology and biology, he began by working closely with the local cooperative, to which he entrusted part of his production. Today, he vinifies his 10 hectares himself, much to our great happiness. A Savagnin specialist, François manages to express all his passion through the wine he produces, and this with a non-interventionist approach. His cuvées are single-parcel and coveted in all four corners of the world. Japanese wine enthusiasts are particular fans of Jura wine because of the ‘umami' flavour it is said to have. So you might have to fight to get your hands on one of these precious bottles.
