2020 ‘Naturé’ Savagnin
Françoise and Michel-Henri Ratte are making exceptional wine in Arbois, Jura. This is Savagnin that is sourced from a single vineyard called Pré Levront just below Corvées. The vines are 20 years old, but a small part was planted by Francoise’s great-grandfather over 100 years ago, and are planted over blue and grey marl. All the grapes are hand harvested and sorted before being pressed into stainless for wild fermentation. The wine is then aged in old oak barrels before being bottled the following year.
Pear, citrus and herbal. Decant this one.
