2007 Vin Jaune
Domaine de la Pinte was established in the 1950s, planting 14ha of Savagnin which has become an unparalleled stock of old vines in the Jura. In 1999, the estate was converted to organic viticulture, then in 2009 to biodynamics.
This precious Vin Jaune pours golden yellow, and permeates every millimetre of your mouth with animated layers of fresh hazelnuts and almonds, dried fruit, baking spice, sherry, potpourri, candied fruit, honey...we could continue, but you get the gist. Pretty mind-boggling stuff, with phenomenal persistence and power. Sniff and sip, slowly. This is a wine that can basically live forever.
