This wine is straw coloured with silver reflections. On the nose are intense nutty aromas including almond, walnut and roasted hazelnuts. The palate has great structure with a focus on clean minerality, wet stones and crisp sea air. The acidity is vibrant and complements the texture really well, providing a long and refreshing finish.

The grapes for this wine came from parcels within “Château Gimont” and “Sous le Viaduc” which are situated in the town of Montigny-lès-Arsures. The vines are planted directly on the grey marls of Lias, which is particularly rare in the AOC Arbois

This estate, founded in 1942 by Désiré Rolet, has risen to prominence by acquiring prime parcels of old vines. Domaine Rolet owns over 65 hectares and cultivates all five of Jura’s varieties: Chardonnay and Savagnin for the whites, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir for the reds. It is now run by a young, dynamic team led by Cédric Ducoté who took over the estate in 2018. Committed to striking the right balance between tradition and modernity, the team is focussed entirely on quality, and has introduced several initiatives in the cellar and vineyards to this end.
