Founded in 1869, this family-run estate, like most during that time, was originally structured on a poly-culture model; vines, grain and livestock. It gradually evolved to producing only grapes and wine over the last 50 years and is now run by Jean-Marie (father) and Damien (son) Courbet. The estate now comprises 7.5 hectares of vineyards.  Since 2005, the Courbets have been farming biodynamically and the estate is currently in transition to organic certification. All harvests are manual and only indigenous yeasts are used. Minimal use of sulfur dioxide is used and the doses range from 20-30ppm.

 

75% Chardonnay, 25% Savagnin
Savagnin is fermented in vat and aged in barrel under flor (or, sous voile) for up to one year whereas the Chardonnay is fermented and aged in barrel and topped off (ouillé). The two are blended a year after harvest.  This is the traditional white wine blend in the Jura (hence the name).
