Domaine des Cavarodes – Etienne Thiebaud

Etienne Thiebaud commenced making his own wine at Domaine des Cavarodes in the village of Cramans in the northern part of the Jura in 2007. He makes wines of amazing purity which reflect the terroir from which they come on either side of the Loue River and across to Arbois.

He only has 4.5 hectares of vines (ranging in age from 15 to 115 years old) which he farms organically but produces many cuvees from these small holdings. The wines are made as naturally as possible with the reds undergoing semi-carbonic maceration following careful de-stemming and maturation in old barrels.

Outskirts of northern Jura. This wine was fermented with native yeasts and was aged in old oak barrels. It was bottled without being fined or filtered and no sulphites were added at any stage.

Grape: Chardonnay
