Fiona Beckett on Jura Les Granges Paquenesses

In her column in The Guardian on 3rd March on women winemakers, Let's raise a glass to women winemakers, Fiona mentions Loreline Laborde’s Jura wine

Les Granges Paquenesses La Pierre (12.5%) £18.38 from Vine Trail,

which she tried on the an all-female winemakers’ list at her local wine bar, Bellita in Bristol:

“a thrillingly pure wine from the Jura that is astonishingly only the second vintage from its young maker, Loreline Laborde.

When I mentioned on Twitter recently that I wanted to talk to women winemakers for a feature in the run-up to International Women’s Day on 8 March, I was overwhelmed by the response. Of course I knew there were a good number (many of them have been on the scene for some time) but not quite how many, or how much they wanted a voice.

Does any of this make a massive difference to the style of a wine? Of course not – women make all kinds of wine, from powerful reds to delicate whites – but I think it’s fair to say that they generally have a more collaborative approach. There are plenty of opportunities to test that theory for yourself.”
