Wine in a can?!?

This year, Yves has taken their Pet Nat and filled both bottles and cans, a concept we're thrilled to endorse. Given that this zesty, youthful fizzer is best enjoyed in its youth, the sustainability angle aligns perfectly with the decision to go for cans.

Introducing Jus de la Folie, or "juice of madness," a Chardonnay varietal from Poligny. Whole bunch pressed, it ferments in steel tanks. Just before fermentation wraps up, the fermenting must finds its way into a pressure tank, where carbonic acid magic happens.

You might catch a fresh hiss when popping the can, followed by a fleeting funky note – it disappears as soon as it hits your glass. Instead, you're welcomed by a medley of fresh, yellow and crisp fruits, think apple, apricot and delicate meadow herbs. It's an uncomplicated, juicy delight. On the palate, it's all about the gentle fizz, casual and uncomplicated.

The goal is simple: enjoyable, easy sipping, and it nails it.

THE ESTATE

Jura native, Yves Roy- Salomon, settled back in his home town of Poligny with his partner Christelle in 2019 and set up their Domaine Nøvice. He is an advocate for Organic and Biodynamic farming and works naturally in the cave.

Yves bought 5 hectares of vines in 2014, retrained in oenology at Montmorot and works for Valentin Morel at Les Pieds sur Terre. One of the best growers in Poligny. There he has crafted his trade along with the help of other Jura guns. All at the age of 50. Their objective of is to set up agronomic work to obtain an autonomous balance of the plots to extract the particularity of each terroir.

Christelle and Yves grow Ploussard and Savagnin, which can express their full potential on the Jura terroirs. The vines have been rooted for 120 years on certain plots. The work in the vineyard is done mechanically, without synthetic products, in order to respect the 5 hectares that Yves and Christelle own. All of the harvesting is of course done by hand. By 2025, the juices from young vines, planted by the couple, of Chardonnay, Pinot and Trousseau, should see the light of day.

“They are the direct expression of the grape varieties, the terroirs and faithfully reflect the climate that the vintage has given us."

They have only one idea in mind, to make the most natural wines possible. So here, there is no place for any oenological product during the fermentation of the juices. The doctrine is zero input! No sulphur, no filtration and natural yeasts... In short, we don't touch anything. The aging is done over 1 year, in vats, then in barrels. The bottles are delivered only after a little rest in bottle. As they say, their wines are: "the direct expression of the grape varieties, the terroirs and faithfully reflect the climate that the vintage has given us."

Yves and Christelle also work in partnership with Olivier and Yohsi (a young Japanese winegrower) with their negoc label O2Y to produce some absolute bangers with grapes bought in different regions of France. The wines are simply magnificent and deeply Jurassic. Bombs of fruit and complexity for such a young domaine.
