Domaine Rolet was created in the early 40’s by Désiré Rolet. For several years, his children took over and shared the various responsibilities of the management of the Estate. When they decided to sell the estate, their requirements for new buyers were high; they wanted to pass the torch to lovers of Jura wines who share the same philosophy for great wines, but also who would be keen to continue the well-established work of the Domaine for the promotion of the different Jurassian soils.
The principal buyer in the acquisition is Burgundian group Domaines Devillard, which owns Domaine des Perdrix in Nuits-St-Georges and Château de Chamirey in Mercurey. Also involved are the Flambert family and, the Dupuis family. These 3 families want to establish the Domaine between tradition and modernity, respecting the Jura wines great diversity, that has leaded the Rolet production to a high level of excellence, each and every vintage.
Domaine Rolet is established as one of the Jura vineyard flagships and its wines propose the whole terroir richness through the large range of Jura grape varieties. Their philosophy: to produce the greatest wines possible, with the loveliest expression of terroir and full of balance and elegance.
