Cotes du Jura
ABOUT THE APPALLATION
The wine growing area covered by the Appellation Controlee is 1800 hectares (4,300 acres). The Revermont is a very fertile area and is well supplied with water by the many rivers that cross it. The vines are grown on the rolling hills that run up the sides of the limestone plateau.The altitude ranges from 250 to 450 metres (800 to 1300 feet) above sea level.
Light but very sweet and perfumed, with aromas of white acacia flower, orange blossom, bread yeast, green apple and white peach. This beautiful wine would pair with almost everything, but we are especially excited to try it with a crab salad or steamed mussels in a lemongrass, fennel and garlic broth.
