Les Dolomies - 2017 Premice Savagnin
This micro-production white by Les Dolomies is the fourth vintage from newish plantings of Savagnin in Les Combe, a famed terroir of the Jura with its deep alluvial limestone. Organic farming – tick. Hand harvested – tick. Wild ferment – tick. Maturation in old oak for a year – tick. No fining or filtration – tick. All the boxes. You know the deal.
It's a calm and classic wine that will make you want to close you eyes and take a deep breath. Slightly reductive, aromatic nose prefaces a broad palate bundled in a wool-soft, muscular mouthfeel. Oxidative profile sewn with preserved lemon, apple, honey, seashell minerality, whispers of walnut and rounded acidity. Très précis.
