Domaine de la Loue Savagnin Jura

REGION Jura, France 

GRAPE Savagnin

ALC. 12%

Nutty - Honeysuckle - Mineral

This is a thing of beauty - Jura wines are one of our favourite and Catherin Hanoun has a way with Savaginin - super classy & elegant this is  showing honeysuckle, stones and faint oxidative notes, underpinned by a deep salinity — a terrific wine.

MORE INFORMATION

From a parcel on Sous la Roche in Pupillin which sits at the top of the hill benefiting from the cooling influence of the nearby forest. The grapes were harvested and pressed straight into barrique where they fermented and aged until April 2021, the bottled with zero additions.

 Catherine Hannoun is based in Port Lesney, a small commune about 15 minutes north of Arbois which exudes the tranquility many associate with the hills of Jura. Having worked for many years in film, including on Mondovino (a film bringing some of the shadier practises of the global wine economy to light), Catherine settled in Jura in 2008. It was clear after working alongside Emmanuel Houillon that this was the area for her, and in 2009 bought a small parcel of vines and her current cellar. She now has 3.2ha of vineyards of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Trousseau and Pinot Noir around Marnoz and Arbois and produces wines that honestly portray the grape and terroir in every sip.
