Chardy with ‘tude.

This 100% Chardonnay from the Jura is composed of hand-harvested 20 year old vines that thrive in the Domaine Bottes Rouges limestone soils. The Casto Chardonnay was done in the ouillé style, with occasional topping up. After, the wine was aged in neutral oak to provide a bit of structure while retaining the wine’s high-toned and tangy characteristics.

  • Jean Baptiste Menigoz began his career as a teacher in Arbois working with special needs children while making natural wine with Raphael Monnier in his spare time.
  • Eventually, he took an apprenticeship with the legendary Jura producer Stéphane Tissot, and made the transition to winemaking full time.
  • Bottes Rouges is made up of the dynamic duo, Jean-Baptiste Menigoz and Florien Kleine Snuverink, a former restaurant manager turned vigneron.
  • Bottes Rouges is home to organically-farmed vines of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Poulsard, Trousseau and Savagnin.

Pairs with:


  • Weeds Marathon.
  • Salmon with sherry cream sauce.
  • Lace gloves.
