Type: Red Wine
Natives of the Jura, but from farming rather than winemaking backgrounds, Géraud and Pauline Fromont began Domaine des Marnes Blanches when they were in their mid-20s. The Marnes Blanches vineyards are divided between three towns: Cesancey, Vincelles, and Ste-Agnès. The Fromonts acquired their Cesancey vineyards first, and those feature the “white marl” soil that gives the Domaine its name, with topsoil of limestone. The vineyards in Ste-Agnès and Vincelles are primarily red marl, with fossilized limestone. They began farming organically from the start and are now Ecocert certified, They work with all native yeast. Parcels are vinified separately and aged in either stainless steel or neutral cask. Sulfuring is minimal, and they’ve begun tentatively to experiment with zero sulfur winemaking.
The Fromonts are ambitious, talented young winemakers who are rising stars in the region, making clean, pure, and vibrant wines with all styles well-executed and delicious.
100% whole bunch fermentation for 10 days in stainless steel tanks. Unfiltered, with minimal sulfur added. A lively, chillable, fresh and energetic light red wine.
