PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN OXIDATIVE STYLE OF WINE
Grape Variety: Savagnin
Producer: Domaine Overnoy
Region: Côtes du Jura, Jura, France
Wild Scale: 2/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic grapes were hand harvested before fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged for 3 years under a layer of flor. Bottled with no filtration, fining or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural white wine made in the classic Jura oxidative style (similar to Vin Jaune, with less ageing). This is rich and complex and still displays fruit notes alongside the nutty and umami flavours expected from the oxidative winemaking method. Best served with cheese!
Notes on the Winemaker: Domaine Overnoy is run by Guillame Overnoy who took over the reins from his father Jean-Louis. He farms vines in Obagna, Clos Jervigny and Cesancey. His great uncle is the legendary Jura winemaker Pierre Overnoy.
