A native of the Jura, Nicolas Jacob came to wine from farming vegetables. Having worked at Domaine Maclet in Chateau Chalon, Nicolas then spent a number of years with Jean Francois Ganevat finishing up as his right hand man. 

What started as a small acquisition of 1 hectare in 2015 has now slowly spread to a little over 5 spread around a few different sites. He is makeing deft wine that is quite fine and pure, highly detailed and unfortunately rare.

Complex, clean and nervy this needs some air to loosen but for all the right results, medium weighted with a creamy pine nut texture braced by that saline Jurassic acidity wrapped in light notes of green plums, cut pear and light white florals. This is a new kid on the block who's star is rising fast, get on board or get left behind.
