De la Borde Savagnin Les Ecrins 2016 Jura
A highlight of a trip to Jura, De la Borde farms 5 hectares on the marl slopes of the town of Pupillin. Biodynamic practices are typical of an approach that focuses on the health of the vines, while natural yeasts and ultra low SO2 additions are employed in the cellar. 48 months in oak and matured sous voile which adds a nutty depth and tones of dried apple. Striking purity and concentration with vivid cut and spicy, smoky notes makes this an exceptional bottle.
