Domaine de la Borde - Savagnin les Ecrins 2016
Region: Arbois / Jura
An excellent sous voile Savagnin from the Jura. Notes of dried fruit, hazelnuts and spice. Fresh and mineral but very concentrated despite the elegance of the aromas. Really interesting wine. Great with a decant.
On a south-west facing plot of gray and deep blue marls, with a steep slope of 25% at 350-450m altitude. Stainless steel ferment using natural yeast then aged in barrel on lees during malolactic fermentation then under voile for 2 years. Fresh, soft, and smooth with subtlety and finesse.
