DOMAINE ROLET is a long established family owned winery, by Desire Rolet in 1942. The Rolet vineyard runs across three AOC's : Arbois, Côtes du Jura and L’Étoile. The winery grows a wide variety of grapes traditional to the area : Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir. The vineyards are farmed sustainably and hand harvested.The Jura is located to the east of the Côte d’Or, and this area is dominated by the forested Jura Mountains and provides a geographical measure of detachment that allowed certain traditional wine styles and grapes to persist in the region. The vineyards of this region (generally on the lower slopes of the mountains and generally at an elevation of 200 to 400 meters), rests on Jurassic limestone (with plenty of fossils) and marl with clay along the lowest sites.
