Domaine Ratte

Domaine Ratte based in Arbois in the Jura is run by Michel-Henri and Francoise Ratte together with their son Quentin. The domaine was set up only in 2015, however, their 9 hectares of vines have been in the family for generations and were certified organic in 2010 and biodynamic in 2011.

Tasting Notes

All Pinot Noir from vines planted on marl are ideal for expressing the characteristics of the grape. A pleasant bouquet with a beautiful palate of ample red fruit, blackberry, elderberry and blackcurrant. Nice assertive tannins that bode well for ageing complement this wine's excellent structure.

Food Matches

Pair with red meat, exotic and spicy dishes and cheeses.
