Type: White Wine
The work of Japanese national Kenjiro Kagami, Domaine des Miroirs is one of those wineries that has acquired cult status in a very short time. In 2001, Kenjiro decided to leave his native country and move to France, where he first started learning the French language, then took on an internship in Burgundy and started working for Thierry Allemand in Cornas. Being a great lover of the Jura, and encouraged by Jean-François Ganevat, Kenjiro eventually set up his own winery there in 2011. Domaine des Miroirs is a reference to his last name, Kagami, which is Japanese for mirror, or miroirs in French. Ultimately, the winery and wines are a reflection of his vision.
The certified-organic domaine comprises approximately 3 hectares of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard and Trousseau. The vines are planted on very steep slopes with a limestone soil. No pesticides are used, and certain herbs and flowers are planted to increase biodiversity. Fruit is harvested by hand and only native yeasts are used for fermentation, which takes place in wooden barrels and is followed by 24 months of barrel aging and another 24 months of bottle aging. This means that the wines are held for 4 to 5 years before release.
