Tasting notes: Macvin du Jura is made by fortifying unfermented Savagnin must, with Marc du Jura; a Brandy made from grape pomace, a by-product of pressing. The high alcohol prevents fermentation, killing any yeast, and creating a naturally sweet ‘wine’, with a similar alcohol level to Port. This is then cask aged for 22 months, to add a slight tannin and impart complimentary flavours from the Oak. Although sweet, this is not a luscious wine, and it benefits from the naturally high acidity of its base grape. This lifts the sugar and prevents it from appearing cloying.
Domaine Rolet was created by Désiré Rolet in 1942 as one of the gems of the Jurassian vineyards. His four children, Pierre, Eliane, Guy et Bernard all took over and shared roles to work within the estate. In a span of two generations and thanks to their hard work, the Rolet family has become one of the top wineries in the Jura.
Their wines reflect the richness of the terroir through the its local grape varietals (white : Chardonnay and Savagnin and red : Poulsard, Pinot Noir and Trousseau) and all its appellations : Arbois, Côtes du Jura, L’Étoile and Château-Chalon.
Domaine Rolet is the project of families who wanted to establish a Domaine between tradition and modernity, respecting the Jura wines great diversity.
These 3 families are the Devillard family (winemakers in Bourgogne for 5 generations and owners of Château de Chamirey in Mercurey, Domaine des Perdrix in Côte de Nuits, Domaine de la Ferté in Givry and Domaine de la Garenne in Mâconnais), the Flambert family (hotels owners for several generations), and the Dupuis family (entrepreneurs family, specialised in martial arts equipment).
They led the Rolet production to a high level of excellence, each and every vintage. Their philosophy is based on meticulous attention to vineyards, small yields and optimal ripening of grapes. Since June 2018, Cédric Ducoté has taken over the direction of the Estate, and is working with ambition and meticulous precision to continue to produce typical Jura wines of high quality. Since his arrival, the reflection to work in organic culture was initiated and in 2020, a part of the vineyards are now in organic conversion.
