$185.00

This Arbois Blanc "Encore Autrement" is the true definition of amber wine, complex and thrilling in personality.

The Jura region is one of France's smallest wine regions comprising just 2,500 hectares. However, despite its size, it has grown a steadfast reputation for the sheer quality of its idiosyncratic wines. Fabrice Dodane, owner of Domaine de Saint Pierre is part of a small group of discerning producers, which includes Jean-François Ganevat, who push the boundaries, making stunning, profound and complex wines. This wine is made like a red wine and spends around 30 days on skins, before being transferred to neutral vat.

The bouquet bursts out of the glass with grapefruit, mandarin and nectarine, alongside notes of aromatic curry powder and ginger spice. The palate is electrifying, chock-full of orange citrus and red stone fruit, and balanced by succulent spice. It can be served with charcuterie, poultry cooked in stock, young Comté cheese, white fish and seafood. Drink now with a 15-minute decant before serving or keep up until 2021+. 100% Savagnin.

"Coming Soon."

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 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 does not add anything to the must or wine. Therefore, the wines are made without sulphur. Once the grapes are pressed, the must is pumped into an oak vat. Upon the completion of fermentation, the wine is racked 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.
