Pauline and Géraud are both from the Jura and come from families who have always worked around vines and agriculture. They met in viticultural school and started the estate in 2006, when they were just 25 years old. Fast forward 15 years: they now manage around 12 hectares in Sud Revermont (the southernmost part of the Jura, where their neighbors are Ganevat and Labet) in the villages of Cesancey, Sainte-Agnès, and Vincelles. The estate takes its name from the white marl soils, but sites also include red marl, limestone, and gryphées (seashell fossils). They make reds, whites (primarily non-oxidative), sparkling, vin jaune, and vin de paille. Farming organically since the beginning, they are focused on hyper-specific Jura wines with each parcel being vinified separately (fermented in stainless steel and aged in used barrels).
Their wines are intended to be a clean and clear representation of place. We think they do it pretty damn well.
