The Winemaker
Geraud Fromont founded Domaine des Marnes Blanches in 2006.
Certified organic; Ecocert.


The Grape
Trousseau is one of 5 grapes allowed in the Jura appellation, but covers only 5% of Jura vineyards.

 
The Appellation
The Cotes du Jura Appellation
 is the largest Jura Appellation with 1,536 acres under vine. AOC 1937

DFW Speak
We love wines that intrigue.
Wozie, this was an amazing discovery, and the Trousseau grape is only planted in 5% of Jura, making it quite rare. This beautiful crafted and integrated wine makes our short short list this year. We bought the last case on the West Coast.
