The name Maire has been linked to the Jura since 1632. Those who regularly travel through eastern France are probably familiar with the 'Henri Maire, Vin Fou' placards on houses. Henri took over about 2.5 hectares of vineyard in 1939. He expanded that to no less than 300 hectares, then about a quarter of the total Jura vineyards, divided over five domains. He single-handedly guaranteed the revival of the Jura as a wine region. For several years now, the company has been owned by another family: Boisset. At the moment the acreage is 225 hectares in total and Boisset invests heavily in vineyards and cellar. The quality, which had declined somewhat in the first 15 years of this century, has now quickly improved again. And this at relatively good prices for the Jura.

With the scarcity, but certainly also the high prices in Burgundy, we can certainly advise you to include wines from the Jura and certainly from Henri Maire in your selection. A fraction of the price of a good Burgundy with excellent quality. This Chardonnay from the Côtes du Jura appellation of Domaine Henri Maire has a fresh straw yellow color in the glass. It is a fine and not bombastic Chardonnay with fresh acidity and fruit elements such as those of white fruit and yellow apple. The taste is creamy and fresh with a pleasant minerality. Spicy and fresh in style.

Vineyard for 2021 Henri Maire Côtes du Jura Chardonnay

The name Maire has been associated with the Jura since 1632. Those who regularly travel through eastern France are probably familiar with the placards on houses that read 'Henri Maire, Vin Fou'. Henri took over about 2.5 hectares of vineyard in 1939. He expanded that to no less than 300 hectares, then about a quarter of the total Jura vineyards, divided over five domains.

He single-handedly ensured the revival of the Jura as a wine region. For several years now, the company has been in the hands of another family: Boisset. At the moment the acreage totals 225 hectares and Boisset invests heavily in vineyards and cellar. The quality, which had declined somewhat in the first 15 years of this century, has now quickly become much better. And this at relatively good prices for the Jura.

Everything that is typically Jura is produced here: grapes such as Savagnin and Chardonnay for white and Trousseau and Pinot noir for red in various appellations such as Côtes de Jura, Arbois and Château Chalon. And styles such as Crémant de Jura, Savagnin non oullié (aged under a natural yeast membrane) and Vin Jaune (at least more than 6 years under such a membrane). With the scarcity but also the high prices, the Jura en Maire is certainly a winery to include in your selection. A fraction of the price with excellent quality
