Story

The wine story of the Lornet family starts with Eugene, Frederic’s grand-father. He was cooper and winegrower. Eugene’s son, Roger, was one of the first of Jura’s producers to bottle the Arbois wines. Frederic Lornet took over the family tradition producing elegant Jura red and white wines. The cellar is located in a thirteenth century Cistercian abbey and the vines of the Domaine are planted on sixteen different plots (delimited in the past by the Cistercians monks).

Vineyard

The vines have a southern exposure, with on average 30 years old. They are planted on red clay and limestone, and yields are kept low in order to focus on high quality fruit.

Vinification

Grapes are fully destemmed, and fermented in oak foudres. Daily cap management, including pumpovers, are continued throughout 10 days of fermentation. Aged one year in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

A light ruby color, with aromas of red fruit and spice. The mouth offers flavors of raspberry and pepper. The palate is of medium body, with a lingering finish on the palate.
