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.
Using Aligote, this Bourgogne Blanc comes from the southern region of the Macon in Burgundy. The vines are 40 years old, a labor of love for this wine. This is a lively Chardonnay oozing with minerality and fresh acidity making it wildly food friendly.
