DOMAINE DE LA TOURNELLE 

Domaine de La Tournelle, located in the heart of legendary French region Jura, has long since become a household name for all lovers worldwide of true, terroir-driven and potentially immortal natural wines. The Domaine was founded in 1991 by Evelyne and Pascal Clairet with the crystal-clear vision in mind to create living natural wines that in every drop and every bottle transmitted the spirit of the terroir of Arbois. Certified organic since 2010, they have worked naturally their 7 hectares from day one, banning any sort of chemical and using only organic compost and minimal amounts of copper and sulphur to maintain the ecosystem’s biodiversity and the vines’ health. Only indigenous fermentations take place with nothing added or taken away, all wines rest for at least 2 years on the fine lees and no SO2 is added. These are exquisite masterworks of rare finesse, tension and power.
