Crémant du Jura Blanc Brut, Domaine Fumey-Chatelain
Located in the Arbois appellation you will find young and energetic Marin who is combining traditional with international expertise to produce his wines. The winery hasn't always had it easy though and back in 1991 a devastating frost killed 95% of their vineyard. However, with true reliance, experimentation and hard work they are now stronger than ever and settled in Montigny-lès-Arsures, Western France.
Marin has done various internships around the world in countries like New Zealand and South Africa. Taking over the 17ha from his parents is the perfect venture for Marin to put his own stamp on the wine world while preserving his families heritage.
