2016 Domaine des Cavarodes Mousseaux La Bulette
Etienne Thiebaud commenced making his own wine at Domaine des Cavarodes in the northern part of the Jura in 2007. He makes wines of amazing purity which reflect the terroir of 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 cuvées from these small holdings. The wines are made as naturally as possible with no additions whatsoever.
This is a Cremant de Jura in all but name – speaking of names, this is another classic example of the French love for word play in their cuvée names.
