Chardonnay Leon Bottes Rouge Menigoz, biodynamic wine, 100% Chardonnay, still young but with bracing acidity, this Chardonnay will age beautifully.  The soils are clay-heavy and they harvest the grapes at the end of September.  Grapes are direct press into 3,000 litre foudre for alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.  Then, they rack the wine into smaller, 440 litre used oak barrels.  Jean-Baptiste reckons that this is a wine which will age very well. In youth, it is very lively, elegant and with superb minerality and layers of complexity.  As it matures the deeper notes of the Chardonnay and Jura terroir will start to show through.  However we think this is absolutely delicious wine to drink now.

Domaine Les Bottes Rouges, Jean-Baptiste Menigoz, biodynamic Jura wine producer.  Menigoz is based in Arbois with vines also in Abergement. He was ten years a teacher in his native Arbois while he dabbled in wine production.  After an apprenticeship with Jura-master, Stéphane Tissot, he decided to commit and set up Les Bottes Rouges with 2.5 hectares of vines.  He has since developed and now has 7 hectares in the region planted to the classic local varieties. He works organically with elements of Biodynamic production.  In the cellar, he employs natural yeasts for fermentations and uses very little sulphur.   His wines are cool, layered in complexity and texture and very, very drinkable.
