Domaine des Carlines was founded in 2015 by three Jura lovers, Patrick Ligeron born in Jura and specialist of exportation of French wines, François Rousset, grower and producer in Nevy sur Seille, near Chateau Chalon and Pierre Beuchet, founder of the Diva Network and owner of distillery in Pontarlier close to Jura. The opportunity came to them end of 2015 when 5Ha of vineyards became available in the area of Chateau Chalon, the Grand Cru of yellow wines and Ménétru-le-Vignoble where they established the domain. The first vintage produced is 2016. The vineyard is run to a sustainable process with the target to convert into an organic process in few years’ time.

En Beaumont Savagnin is Cotes du Jura Blanc hailing from a 0.5 hectare parcel in the Chateau-Chalon appellation. This plot has a south-east exposure at 300m altitude, and the vines are 40 years old and planted in the middle of the hillside with a protection from the wind.

Other Reviews....
Very attractive, dried-lemon and pastry notes with almond blossom and a chalky, fresh-mineral edge. The palate has a juicy yet concise feel with lemon and white-peach flavors, delivered in pristine, balanced mode. So fresh on the finish.
