Winemaker notes

Le Monceau is aged "sous voile" or under a veil of flor or yeast that develops under specific environmental conditions in the cellar. Not aged for as long as Vin Jaune, this wine offers a introduction to the the oxidative wine style that the Jura has become known for around the world.

Viticultural Notes

The vineyard is located very close to the commune of Rotalier in southern Jura and was planted in the mid-1970s.
