The Jura is bursting with fresh talent at the moment and Jurassien Cédric Mottet is one of those vignerons. He grew up around the vines, working in them most of his adolescent years to learn his craft. Cedric left the Jura to study music and a professional career however he always aspired to become a vigneron. He’s combined his passion for jazz with his love of wine, taking his domaine name from the blue notes, those notes which are not written but which the musicians know how to integrate into their improvisations. This also translates into his wine as he confidently experiments to create interesting cuvees.
Most of his cuvées are single vineyard from old vines between 70 and 80 years old, however Cedric has also planted 1.5 hectares of young wines all with organic practices.The whites are all aged in burgundy barrels and demi muid to give texture and length to his wines. Cedric’s whites are traditional in styling, with minerality and complexity, and he stays true to his love of jazz with many references in the cuvee names.
