Baka/Karnage — Beattie & Roberts

Charles Dagand (formerly of Domaine L’Octavin) and Stéphane Plance (owner of wine store Les Jardins de St. Vincent in Arbois) came together to form this new negociant project based in the Jura. After some devastating harvests while working on his own project, Carlito, Charles wanted a project that would be less dependent on nature’s whims. This is Stéphane’s first time making his own wine. This is their second vintage. The grapes are sourced from vineyards around France, in particular in the Languedoc and vinified in Charles’ cellar just north of Arbois. They have a few hectares in Jura. 

Certified organic. Winemaking a la Jean Marc Brignot, lots of semi-carbonic maceration.
