Due to the tiny amount of grapes she was able to harvest, this is a blend of all Morgane’s parcels in both Salins-les-Bains and Marnoz, hence the name. The vines are between forty and a hundred years old, planted over limestone and marl. Morgane destemmed the grapes, fermented them on the skins for a month and left them to age for nine months in cuve. The result is as pure and vibrant expression of Trousseau as you could ever hope to find, with perfect tannins framing dark fruit, cleansing minerals and a gentle spice.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Morgane Turlier is one of the most promising young winemakers in the Jura today.
Morgane farms just under a hectare of old vines of Chardonnay, Savagnin and Trousseau planted over a mix of limestone and Jurassic marl in the commune of Marnoz.
Working several days a week for Etienne Thiebaud of Domaine des Cavarodes, Morgane has a sensitive approach to farming. The vines are worked by horse and treated with nothing more than a little copper, sulphur and herbal teas.
In the cellar she adds nothing and takes nothing away, producing delicate, pure wines with a beautiful sense of place. If her first vintages are anything to go by, the future is bright for this talented vigneronne.
