100% Savagnin (ouillé). The Côtes du Jura is a blend of fruit from Arbois, Passenans and Château-Chalon. The parcels in Arbois (En Chemenot) and Passenans are both organically farmed, with Croix and Courbet both involved in the harvesting decisions. The third parcel in Château-Chalon is called En Beaumont and is farmed by Courbet himself. Currently in organic conversion, the Savagnin vines here were planted in 1962, 1985 and 1991 and are rooted in gently sloping clay and limestone scree (60-80 cm deep) over grey marl.

In terms of the winemaking, every bunch was harvested by hand and the grapes went through a three-hour press cycle with whole clusters lightly crushed. All ferments were natural, and this cuvée was raised for five months in older barrels followed by 15 months in stainless steel tank. Every care was taken to keep sulphur additions in the range of 20-30 ppm (none was added during élevage and there was only a slight adjustment at bottling).
