Arbois Chardonnay, 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.
Producer Domaine Fumey-Chatelain
Viticulture & Winemaking Organic (aim to be fully Biodynamic by 2022) grapes are hand harvested from clay/limestone hillsides and go through a spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for a year and a half in these tanks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Region Jura, France
Tasting Notes Made from 100% Chardonnay the wine shows fresh and floral hints of wild white blossoms along with a strong backbone of minerality.
