Domaine Daniel Dugois, Arbois 'Sous Voile' Savagnin, Jura, France
This wine is complex, thought-provoking, and oh so delicious. Notes of green apple, almond, hazelnut and spice on the nose. The mouth feel is rich, but with a delicate acidic structure and an underlying note of chalky minerality.
The grapes for this Savagnin are hand harvested from steep slopes and native yeasts are used during fermentation. The wine is then aged three years in oak barrels in an oxidative environment, creating the distinct richness and profile wines of the Jura are known for.
