Florent Rouve is one of many that wasn’t born into winemaking. His father was a geologist which led to a natural interest in nature. After the family moved to the Jura area, he took on a job working as a forest manager of several nearby vineyards. The interest in viticulture bloomed and the rest is history. Florent got his feet wet working with Jean Rijckaert where he continued a minimalist style of winemaking. While he has begun his own label, he still maintains the show stopping wines for Rijckaert. He makes wines in the Jura and Macon regions constantly improving his spirit of tradition and modernism.
While Savagnin is the variety used to make vin jaune, or “yellow wine,” this wine is meant to be a dry wine made for the dinner table. The wine is full bodied and has a mildly intense salty finish. Meant to be served with richly flavored food like pork, potatoes and French cheeses.
