Heritage de Calcaire Arbois Blanc Savagnin
The Jura vineyards cover 1865Ha along a north-south axis, stretching from Salins-les-Bains to Saint-Amour. This strip of land is bounded on the east by the first limestone plateau of the Jura Mountains and on the west, by the plain of Bresse. In front, towards the west stretches in the same axis, Burgundy. They only produce white wine with Savagin and Chardonnay under the Protected Designation of Origin (AOP) Arbois and Côtes-du-Jura. We are looking for the right expression of terroir.
Ageing begins on the lees without any stirring to preserve the purity of the structure. The wine spent 16 months ageing in the barrel.
Savagnin, not to be confused with Sauvignon Blanc, is a wine grape with a long history that is today arguably most famous for producing ‘vin jaune’ in Jura, eastern France. While the debate of its origins is ongoing, Savagnin is today best known as the signature grape of Jura.
