Chardonnay Cuvée Orange 2014

The Wine: Chardonnay Cuvée Orange 2014 Domaine Gérard Villet Chardonnay Cuvée Orange is a skin-contact natural wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes farmed sustainably in Jura, France. Cuvée Orange is vinified similarly to red wine, in that the grapes are pressed only after the alcoholic fermentation is complete. This winemaking method yields a more aromatic and structured style of Chardonnay. The Producer: Domaine Gérard Villet Domaine Gérard Villet, is located in Arbois, the oldest AOC in France (1936). The family has been making wine in the pastoral region of the Jura since 1900. The domaine is presently managed by husband and wife Gérard and Christine Villet. Gérard tends to the vineyards and winemaking, while Christine manages all commercial and administrative aspects of the estate. In 1988 the domaine converted to organic farming practices and it has not looked back since. The estate is now comprised of 5.4 hectares, with half of the vines planted to Chardonnay and the rest comprised of decreasing smaller amounts of Savagnin, Poulsard, Pinot and Trousseau.
