A Chardonnay ouillé from sixty-year-old vines. More info

The Vin de France ‘Gravières' cuvée comes from sixty-year-old vines planted in soil rich in chalk and clay. Whilst François Rousset-Martin is a skilful Savagnin connoisseur, it's the Chardonnay grape that takes centre stage in this cuvée.
In the vineyards, organic methods are applied, a philosophy that carries on into the winery, where the grapes are vinified to best bring out the character of their terroir.
Les Gravières is a lively, ouillé wine with good structure. It carries pleasant notes of aromatic herbs. Persistent on the palate, it is promising as a cellaring wine. We recommend uncorking this bottle with a dish like veal.

Vin de France Gravières François Rousset Martin serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Morbier affiné, Pintade à la crème, Blanquette de veau.

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.
