Marcel Cabelier is part of Maison du Vigneron. The Maison du Vigneron is the the N° 1 Producer of Jura Wines and Crémants, acting as a negociant in what is a very small production and hard to source from region of France, While the winery has no vineyards of its own, it hand-selects the farmers with which it works and supports their viticulture efforts to ensure that the grapes delivered are of the utmost quality. They produce the full stable of wines from the region: white wines and red wines, Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille, Jura Crémants and Macvin liqueurs, all lie maturing under our watchful gaze within barrels in their storerooms.
Their production includes AOP Arbois; AOP Château Chalon; AOP L’Etoile; AOP Côtes du Jura; AOP Macvin du Jural; and, AOP Crémant du Jura. In addition to the AOP wines, the Maison du Vigneron is also specializes in Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille, or raisin wine (both also AOP-certified).
Since it was first founded, the Maison du Vigneron has cultivated a partnership among 100 different grape-growing vineyards, which work in close collaboration with wine-growing experts following meticulously recorded specifications and checks.
The Côtes du Jura appellation encompasses the entire vineyard area of the Jura. The grape variety Trousseau (also known as Bastardo) comprises about 5% of the total vineyard plantings and is one of the regions signature varieties. If you enjoy Pinot Noir, you are likely to also appreciate the complex and earthy character of Trousseau. The 2020 vintage was a warm vintage in Jura and the resulting wines are fuller and richer than previous examples. Expected a cherry red wine which shows distinct aromas of strawberry jam, black cherries, violets, tea and spice. The palate is very juicy and refined with notes of ripe red fruits and underbrush with a lingering, mouth-watering finish.
L’Etoile is a very small Appellation within the Jura region, so named as it’s limestone rich soils contain fossils that mirror the 5 points of a star. As well, the village is surrounded by 5 hills which also mimic the star formation.
