Producer: Domaine Villet
Grape variety: 100% Savagnin
A “used” Savagnin that has been macerated. A beautiful minerality and floral notes for a resolutely Jura wine!
The estate of Gérard and Christine Villet is located in Arbois, capital of Jura wines and historically the first controlled designation of origin (AOC) in France. The estate was taken over from the in-laws, whose ancestors have been winegrowers in Arbois since the 1900s. The estate was converted to organic viticulture in 1988 and was thus one of the precursors in this sector. This year, 15 ha (including 3 ha for the estate) across the entire Jura vineyard were certified in biology, or 0.75%; whereas today, organic wine represents 15% of the vineyard area. The farm has always retained its character and family dimensions. Gérard works there alone with his wife, who takes care of the administrative and commercial part, and supporting apprentices in training. The harvest remained manual, in order to protect the quality and health of the grapes, and also remained very friendly.
