    This comes from a massale selection on 3309 rootstock, from the marl vineyards of La Touraize and Petit Curoulet (planted in 1980). Destalked 100% by hand, this is made by a semi-maceration whole grape fermentation, unfined and unflitered with just 20mg/l of sulphur, giving a subtle, red fruited, spicy wine with hint of game and good bite on the finish. For drinking now to 2019.

    Les Corvées is one of the finest lieu-dit vineyards for Trousseau, with south-west facing hillside vineyards and loose gravelly soil overlying marls. Destalked 100% and given a 30 day cuvaison during which light remontage was carried out. Trousseau is also planted in Portugal where it is known as Bastardo, and it rarely reaches full phenolic ripeness in the Jura (chapatalisation is common) – but there were no problems in 2015. Aged in recent 600 litre foudres for 12 months, it offers ripe mulberries, raspberries, touch of mocha with hint of spice on the finish. For drinking now to 2021.

    15 and 30yo vines planted in blue marls (la Régole and la Rivière) here give 40hh. Vinified using natural yeasts and aged in foudres for a year, savagnin always retains its natural balance and freshness even in warmer vintages like 2015, and this topped up wine offers sappy citrus fruits, with good salinity and attractive bitters on the finish. For drinking now to 2022.
