Macvin du Jura Rouge - Valentin Morel
A sherry-like nose, with notes of plums, honey, hazelnuts, and brown sugar... A smooth and balanced palate, with lovely volume and notes of candied fruits on the finish. A delightful way to end a meal, to be served chilled.

A red macvin, (a sweet vin de liqueur), made from spirits distilled in 2012 in a traditional still from the marc of all the grape varieties grown at the estate and matured in old barrels for four years, in which Valentin macerated destemmed Trousseau grapes from 2016. It’s not the most common method of producing red Macvin, but it does endow the wine with lovely structure. The blend was matured two years in old barrels, and then aged another two years in the bottle at the estate before release. Neither fined nor filtered, and no added sulphites.
Valentin Morel was a government officer in a French prefecture in 2014 when, in rather dramatic fashion, he left his post… and returned home to reconnect with his family’s farming roots. He took over the 6-hectare estate of his father Jean-Luc Morel, who spent more than 30 years passionately working these vines, planted around the village of Poligny in the heart of Jura. It was his readings,...All wines
