Fréderic Lornet

Address: Abbaye de Genne, 39600 Montigny-les-Arsures
Tel: 03 84 37 45 10  Fax: 03 84 37 40 17

A tasting room and cellars in a converted old abbey make impressive surroundings in which to taste this reliable range of wines. Lornet was one of the first Jura producers to export regularly to the USA. As well as fine Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille, his Chardonnays and his Trousseau reds are well worth trying. My favourite wine in most vintages is his lemony dry Savagnin Ouillé named Naturé (the old name for Savagnin). To meet the man himself (who has plenty to say!), make an appointment – he also owns a domaine in Saint Chinian in the Languedoc, so he often decamps down there.
