This Arbois Blanc "Savagnin Autrement" is fresh, complex and spicy.

The Jura region is one of France's smallest wine regions comprising just 2,500 hectares. Despite its size however, it has grown a steadfast reputation for the sheer quality of its wines. Fabrice Dodane, owner of Domaine de Saint Pierre is part of a small group of discerning producers, which includes Jean-Francois Ganevat, who push the boundaries, making stunning, profound and complex wines. The "Savagnin Autrement" cuvée comes from vineyards located on grey marl with small limestone rocks in the appellation Arbois.

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.

It can be drunk with charcuterie, poultry cooked in stock, young Comté cheese. Drink now or keep up until 2022+. 100% Savagnin. Dry style. Please decant for 25 minutes and serve in big Chardonnay glasses.

"The “Savagnin Autrement” cuvée shows the purity of the Savagnin varietal made on the best terroir of Jura. A delicate yet vibrant wine that is very refreshing."

At Domaine de Saint Pierre, the grapes are treated with the greatest care, farmed organically and using biodynamic practices. The very low yields achieved through rigorous vineyard management and are testament to the high quality of the wine. The grapes are sorted and only the healthiest grapes make it to the press. From harvest to bottling, Fabrice isn’t adding any inputs to the must or wine. Therefore, the wines don’t have any sulphur added. Once the grapes are pressed, the must is pumped into an oak vat. Once the fermentation is done, the wine is raked and returned to the oak vat to undergo its second fermentation and maturation for 13 months. The wine is then bottled without clarification or filtration.
