Château de la Jousseliniere
Family owned estate on the Cote Atlantic since 1670. Originally from Burgundy, the Chon family settled in the Pays Nantais at Saint-Julien de Concelles with an armful of “Melon de Bourgogne” cuttings and some “Folle Blanche” varietal which were planted in the 1930’s on granite and schist soils. Sustainable farming, fermentation in cement tanks without malolactic fermentation to create fresh, high acidity, mouthwatering whites!
The estate is composed of 15 ha of Melon de Bourgogne (between 30 to 40 year old vines) planted on a deep granitic and schist soil on the Atlantic coast near the city of Nantes under an oceanic influence and salinity.
