Domaine Désiré Petit Arbois-Pupillin

Savagnin ‘L’Essen’ciel', 2016

France Provence & Regional

Jura 75cl

Lovely Savagnin from the Jura. The wine completed its fermentation in 600 litre oak barrels and underwent batonnage (stirring of the lees) through the first 2-3 months but then also each week until bottling. Aged for 6 months in a closed demi-muid to prevent oxidation - this is unusual for Savagnin in the Jura. The slightly oxidative note on the nose is the grape as this wine has not been made that way.
Stone fruits on the palate with a lovely creamy textural hazelnut character, some pineapple too, long finish with spiced apple and pear and a fresh streak of acidity. Complex and very interesting, would be great with a creamy fish dish.
