Winemaking: Organic Savagnin grapes grown on blue schist were hand harvested and spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeast in old oak barrels. Aged for a further 2 years in barrel. Bottled with no filtration, fining or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural white wine, rich and opulent in character. Creamy citrus flavours with a brioche edge from the extended lees contact. Made in the 'Ouille' Jura style which means the barrels have been topped up and the wine is not an oxidative style. Also there are no oak flavours present. Perfect with white meat, creamy seafood dishes and cheese.
Notes on the Winemaker: Julien Mareschal came to the Jura region at the age of 23 after studying winemaking in Burgundy and now owns 5 hectares of vines at high altitude in the famous region of Arbois. He he produces immaculate wines with the use of little or no sulphur using local grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Savagnin and Ploussard.
