Francois Rousset-Martin established his winery in 2007. Both his father and his grandfather were involved in wine production, and Francois caught the wine making bug attending a parcel of family vines which he would later vinify with his father. After gaining a degree in oenology and making wine in the Southern Rhone and Languedoc, he returned to the Jura.
His current work is most focused on making wines in the Château Chalon in the topped up ‘ouillé’ style, therefore they are release as Côtes du Jura. Slthough for this vintage the Gravieres was release as a Vin De France. The Gravieres cuveé is from 40-50 year old vines growing on limestone. Vinified with little to no sulphur, the wine spends 15 months on fine lees before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine is complex and persistent, falling somewhere along the spectrum of floral and delicate, exotic and savory.
