Pink grapefruit, lemon oil, pineapple lollies, honey covered biscuit, brown pears, starshine. Magnificent.‘La Tour Sarazine’ is Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains. Mmmmm three weeks on skins gives us golden liquid. Then aged for 1 year in cask on the lees, the wine is removed from the lees and then relaxes 4 more months in the tank before bottling. Born, bred and based in Savoie, studying all over with some of the greats but returning in 2004, Jean-Yves is patiently reviving ancient, forgotten vineyards in the French Alps. He tends his vineyards biodynamically, working across several micro-parcels containing Mondeuse, Jacquere, Altesse, and Roussanne. His vines are over a century old, and the incline of the vineyards in this region mirror something like Mosel, one is rather abseiling, rather than just grape-tending. Fruit is all fermented naturally with no additives, expressing truthfully the amazing ancient Alpine terroir. Since 2017 he has been experimenting with fruit from Northern Italy too, making for an increasingly exciting array of releases each year.
