Created in the 1960s by M. Rolet, the eponymous domaine is the second largest in the Jura region, spanning 62 heactres. The property was passed on to his children Élyane, Pierre, Bernard and Guy who sold it in 2018 to the well-known Burgundian wine family, the Devillards (of Château de Chamirey, Domaine de la Ferté, Domaine des Perdrix and Domaine de la Garenne fame). No doubt this domaine, which already produced wonderful wines, will continue to impress in the years to come.
About the cuvée
This cuvée is produced from vines planted high on the slope in the "En Chagnon" lieu-dit, in the commune of Montigny-les-Arsures. The vines grow alongside a limestone ledge consisting mainly of gravel, revealing grey marl from the underlying Lias formation. Vanilla aromas and subtly lemony notes open into a more generous bouquet. The palate is characterised by an attractive tautness and strong mineral character.
