2015 AOC Arbois 'Savagnin'
Savagnin from 30 year old vines on the Petit Curoulet parcel, grown on blue marl. Direct pressed into tank, ferment started, then transferred to and aged in old 228L barrels, under flor for 30 months.
Very fresh and lifted, this is super vibrant!. Lots of lemon curd, sweet corn, salinity, a touch of nutmeg and white florals. Very easy to drink, beautifully long and complex. Crystalline and pure in its delivery. High acidity, lingering texture, lots of lemon, honey, and lime. Some nutty notes, but gentle. This is such an amazing example of this style, and even more impressive that it is at this level from the 2015 vintage. Stunning.
