Jane Eyre Côte du Jura Blanc


Jane Eyre grew up in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. For 10 years, she cut hair in Melbourne, and one of her clients was the wife of Aussie wine critic Jeremy Oliver, which opened the door for her to go to work in Burgundy (she did vintage there in 1998). When she got back she met wine merchant Philip Rich and got a job at his Prince Wine Store. She started doing vintages at various wineries in Australia, New Zealand and Burgundy. Eventually she decided to move to Burgundy, which she did in 2004, and where she now works as a winemaker at Domaine Newman, as well as running her own micro-negociant operation (since 2011, she shares a winery with Dominique Lafon). These are lovely wines with a distinctive, nicely poised, lean house style. She doesn’t over extract. ‘You’ll kill the beauty of Pinot by over-extracting it.’

This Côte du Jura is the most recent addition to Jane’s portfolio, the fruits comes from a biodynamically run vineyard in Arbois. The average age of the vines is 60 years. The wine has been made and aged in the Jura. It’s been fermented and aged partly in stainless steel and in a 500L one-year-old oak barrel. Indigenous yeast and only sulphured lightly prior to bottling in February.
