Produced by Jeremy and Isabelle Decoster, who started Les Cortis in 2016 in Bugey at the foot of the Jura mountains.

60% Chardonnay, balanced out with 40% Altesse, from organically/biodynamically farmed vines 500 meters above sea level. Soil is limestone and marl above granitic bedrock.

This wine is salty and herbal with green tea and sea breeze followed by lovely chopped raw almonds on the nose. Fruit is yellow cherry and clementine zest. After half an hour open, smells of sliced ginger and white pepper appear. On the palate, there is minerally, smokey salinity.
