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.
Though Jura is known more for its reds from Trousseau or Poulsard, Gamay still does well in this part of France. This is old vine Gamay made in a light, fresh and juicy style. The wine is lighter than many white wines, and therefore, can be swapped as a pairing where whites also work.
