Peggy and Jean-Pascal Buronfosse moved to Jean-François Ganevat’s village La Combe de Rotalier in 1999 after growing tired of life in the city. They wanted to live in a countryside setting where they could grow their own vegetables and raise chickens, rabbits, and pigs. Originally, their dream was to have a farm but gradually viticulture drew their curiosity. They realized that they wanted to grow both their food and their drink. After acquiring several small vineyard parcels, they began producing wine via trial and error as well as with some guidance from Monsieur Ganevat. Today they have certainly found their way.

Vineyards: 4 hectares (Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Pinot Noir, Trousseau); ECOCERT certified

  • Buronfosse 2020 'Ephemere' Chardonnay, Cotes du Jura AOC

    Someone poured me a white double blind and I guessed it a Chardonnay from Jura. I thought about Labet (whose wines I could not taste this time, as they were busy in the vineyards and I couldn't find the wines in any shop in the region...), but it was a Chardonnay from Peggy and Jean Pascal Buronfosse, which they call 2020 Ephémère, which is not far at all from Labet in style nor geography, as they are in the same village, Rotalier, in the southern part of Jura. The wine has the structure and roundness of Chardonnay but with the tasty leanness from Jura, with good ripeness and 13.5% alcohol, a little salty and yeasty. The back label mentions "a confidential and ephemeral cuvée." It's a wine they don't produce every vintage, which they describe as ‘a rare cuvée of Chardonnay, an intensely emotional wine from a plot on silt and limestone mother rock planted in 1948 and aged for 18 months in 350-liter topped-up barrels. Of course, agriculture is organic, yeasts are native and sulfur is minimal.’
