Raphael Monnier is a full-time history teacher with a dual career as a wine-maker in the area of Arbois in the Jura. "Ratapoil," the name he chose for his domaine, is local slang for "hobby wine-maker". His vineyard is certified biodynamic.
The Assemblage Blanc 2016 is made with 100% chardonnay grapes that have been barrel-aged. This wine is light and crisp and would shine alongside good friends and a board of charcuterie.
