Domaine de Saint Pierre Savagnin Autrement 2018
About the wine:
This Arbois Blanc "Savagnin Autrement" is fresh, complex and spicy. The bouquet opens up to the flavours of fresh citrus, dry extracts of orange and lemon, hints of spice and white flowers. There is a sea breeze going through on the palate emphasizing a vivacious attack on the palate and a lovely finish.
Appellation: Côtes du Jura AOC
Farming: Certified Organic
About the producer:
After studying enology in Beaune and working several years at the cooperative in Pupillin, Fabrice Dodane started working at Domaine de Saint Pierre in 1989 as manager. Fabrice took full control of the estate in 2011. The winery is based in the small town of Matheny and covers approximately 6 ha in the Arbois and Côtes du Jura AOCs with the vines planted in limestone and marl soils. Saint Pierre achieved organic certification in 2012, having started conversion in 2002. All wines are fermented with native yeasts either in tank or neutral barrel. Vinification for the reds is done without the addition of sulfur, and the whites are vinified in both the traditional sous voile method, as well as topped-up, or ouillé style. These are clean, balanced expressions of their terroir, and drink almost too easily.
