100% Melon a Queue Rouge

Melon à Queue Rouge evolved from Chardonnay in the Jura. Centuries of growing Chardonnay on very poor clay soils near Arbois eventually yielded a new variety. This red‐stemmed white grape is called Melon à Queue Rouge (Red‐tailed Melon). The 25‐year‐old organically grown grapes are hand‐harvested and spontaneously fermented. The wine is then aged sur lee in neutral 228‐liter barrels for 18 months.

The Jura’s vineyards cover an intermittent 80 kilometer strip of land between Burgundy and Switzerland. Living in Pupillin for more than 75 years, the Petit Family has long been producing Jura wines and even have winemaking roots that date back to 1657. It was the grand‐father Désiré Petit who started the present estate in 1932. His two sons, Gér‐ ard and Marcel, took over the family estate in 1970 and increased to 27 hectares of vineyards by 2008. Today, Anne‐Laure and Damien (Marcel’s son) artfully craft great Jura wines from their organically tended vines. The slopes where the different types of grapes are grown consist of a combination of limestone and clay from the Triassic and Jurassic periods. The average age of their vines is 25 years and they grow the 5 Juran varieties: Ploussard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Savagnin. At Domaine Désiré Petit, the grapes are harvested entirely by hand. All wines are aged in oak barrels. 70% of their production is sold from their tasting room with most of the remainder to restaurants and retailers in France. Just a small portion (less than 10%) is available for export .
