The Jura has become a treasure trove of blink-and-you’ll-miss-them micro-domaines crafting thrilling, Burgundy-inspired whites and delicious local specialities alongside the region’s historic winemaking families. A newcomer operating under the radar, Cédric Mottet’s terroir-focused bottlings immediately caught our attention as the next must-have for Jura-philes.
After a stint in the music industry, Cédric returned home to train under Jean-Michel Petit of Domaine de la Renardière before establishing Domaine des Notes Bleues – named as a nod to his love of jazz.
In 2017, Cédric purchased a small plot of vines from elite Jura vigneron Stéphane Tissot, as well as a further 3ha of old-vine parcels around Arbois and Mesnay. Inspired by Tissot’s parcellaire approach and Petit’s quality-first, biodynamic winemaking, Cédric crafts tiny quantities of site-specific wines from organically farmed local varieties. After ageing in large Burgundy barrels, his wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
From 15-to-80-year-old vines in ‘Le Cul du Bray’, ‘Les Nouvelles’, ‘En Musard’, and ‘Les Sarres’, Cédric’s Savagnin is made in the ouillé (“topped up”) style. Aged for 24 months on its lees, it offers a smoky orchard fruit character alongside herbal freshness.
Pear and lemon with fresh herbs and smoky minerals. Long and tingling. Drink to 2030.
