Tasting Notes

This is Jura! Savagnin made traditionally. There is both richness and focus at play with this wine. Oxidative handling during ferment and maturation means this wine has a big heart (richness) but because of Savignin's high acid nature it is also has a heart beat (acidity). Drinking most wines from the Jura is an experience unlike most others so you have to be open-minded if you're not use to the style. We're talking about a heap of complexing savoury notes like nuts, bruised apple and honey, with a volumptuous body of texture. I love these wines with food and I'd love to see more people drinking them. - Chris L

A sous voile (oxidative) wine. Bottled after 30 months in older barrel under voile. Taken from vines in Fangy and Passenans. This Savagnin ticks all the boxes if you are a Jura fan. That classic aldehydic, pungent nose drawing you in from the oxidation. A little marzipan, curry spices and walnut paste. Plenty of herbal influences. There is perfect progression on the palate. A concoction of savoury elements similar to the nose meet you at first sip and continue through the mid palate. Finishing with an amazing length of grape phenolics, old barrel grip and acidity that only the best Jura whites achieve. - Greg Murphy
