Cotes du Jura, Les Chassagnes
From soils of mostly limestone with some marl and clay, these Savagnin vines are from the parcel called ‘Les Chassagnes.’ Grapes are handpicked and pressed, then left to settle for about fourteen hours. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation both take place in a 2,400 liter foudre, and there the wine is left to age for about 48 months with regular ouillage. It is a Savagnin of the new generation, with freshness and exotic, intense aroma. The wine is made in a ouillé style, and develops slightly oxidized characteristics with a distinct mineral note. It reflects remarkably its powerful terroir: a wine of perfect harmony.
