Notes from the Importer: The domaine was created in 1982 when Jean-Louis Overnoy took over the family’s polyculture farm and decided to produce wine for a living. In 2014, Jean-Louis passed the baton to his son Guillaume (20yo then) who has converted the 5.5ha to organic as well as reducing the production of crémant and vins sous voile for more ouillé style wines.
The 'coeur historique' of the domaine is located in Orbagna (lieu-dit En Poinot), 2.9ha where four generations of the family have planted vines.
Guillaume also tends 2ha of 40-50yo vines above the neighbouring village of Beaufort on a stunning coteau known as the Clos Jervigny. The remaining 0.6ha are located in Cesancey and were planted by Jean-Louis in 2001. The five main Jura grapes are planted in the different locations and soil types.
