80% Muscat grapes harvested at the Roussillon domaine Danjou-Banessy, plus a touch of the Jousset’s own Chenin Blanc. Natural fermentation starts in vat and finishes in the bottle, after which the wine is left undegorged.
Domaine Lise et Bertrand Jousset
The Jousset’s are a young couple making amazingly pure and highly sought-after wines from their domain in Montlouis-Sur-Loire. A recent string of terrible harvests due to hail caused them to purchase or harvest grapes at befriended (and equally organic or biodynamic) vignerons elsewhere in France, which are vinified and bottled under the ‘Exilé’ label. In fact, these ‘Exilé’-cuvees have become so prolific that they are now probably more famous worldwide than their greatest domain-sourced work.
