    Product description

    Blink and you might miss Nevy-sur-Seille, a village tucked away in the Vallée des Reculées, where François Rousset-Martin makes his wine. Albeit discreet, this part of the Jura resembles something of the American West—undiscovered and wild, and rich in natural habitat. The backdrop here is dramatic: Massive limestone and marl cliffs perched atop pedestals of sloping vineyards, and in the foreground, flocks of livestock grazing and snoozing the day away. Traditionally a mixed farming region, the Jura is witnessing a new generation focused exclusively on winemaking, and in the case of Rousset, redefining what we consider typical of the area with his vins ouillés.

    The Croix Sarrant is yeasty and rich, but equally clean and bright, like a beautifully aged Muscadet. It has a round mouthfeel, quite silky and juicy, with a minerality that is more smooth slate than chalk. Fruits that come to mind are ripe citrus and their slightly bitter seeds.
