Tasting Notes

Anglophones will struggle with ‘Ouillé’ but this technical term meaning ‘topped up’ is important to distinguish it from the traditional Jura Savagnins made with exposure to air. Without those oxidative influences, the aromatic nature of Savagnin (a member of the Traminer family) is allowed to be expressed. There is high acidity, bringing bracing, zesty freshness on the attack but behind this are pleasing grapey, lightly spiced notes. It is the energy and sense of purpose in this wine that is the biggest surprise though and perhaps makes this the real surprise package in the line-up. This is a spring-time wine that will bring colour and light to any occasion and could quite easily become a new benchmark for this beautiful region. Just 3,000 bottles produced. Drink from release and over the next 2-3 years.
