The fascinating L’Ivresse de Noe (named after the biblical story of the drunkeness of Noah) is a November harvest Savagnin. Because Savagnin has a hard skin the grapes can withstand the drying process as they wither on the vine and concentrate the flavour inside the grape.
The bunches are then hand-picked and pressed then moved to 400 litre tonneau to mature for two years. The barrels are kept topped up during that time.
A little residual sugar linked to high acidity gives this non-oxidative Savagnin an unusual flavour and texture; it is a beautiful, vinous wine with a very long finish. It is often drunk in the Jura as an aperitif but can also be matched with a wide range of foods. - Importer Note
Tony started his career been working with his father and then studying winemaking at University before spending time in broadening his winemaking experience in Australia.
He then secured vines in one of the most iconic spots in the Jura, namely around the huge "Pupillin" sign in the centre of the Arbois-Pupillin appellation area. From these vines he is currently producing a single Chardonnay cuvee, a delicate Pinot Noir and a light red made from Ploussard (Pupillin is, after all, the world capital of Ploussard).
