This Syrah is cultivated biodynamically, on a soil of highly decomposed granite soil known as "Gore" and loamy-clay. The yields are 25 hl/ha. The vinification is simply a continuity of his natural approach in the vines: indigenous yeasts, 100% destemming, daily punching down of the cap, fermentation for 14 days, and no “gory” chemicals. Maturation: 13 months in egg-shaped cement vats. Vacuum sealed at bottling, without filtering or fining.
Matthieu Barret has been making wine at Domaine du Coulet since 1998. It was Stéphane Tissot, one of Jura's most famous vignerons, who first gave Barret the nickname "Petit Ours Brun" (little brown bear), and it quickly caught on among his vigneron peers, and even found its way onto his wine labels, such as his red and white cuvées Petit Ours Brun and Petit Ours Blanc.
