2016 Philippe Bornard Côtes du Jura Savagnin Les Chassagnes

Jura, France

Made from 100% Savagnin a white grape that is native to the Jura region, as with many wines from the Jura this wine has been made with a slight oxidative edge which gives it a beautiful, nutty, savoury, umami quality that makes for compelling drinking. You will get notes of grapefruit. almonds and hazelnuts and even salt before you notice the long, long finish. This is an incredibly exciting wine that is unlike any produced in this country. Thanks to Sue and Roger for the notes.

About the maker

Philippe Bornard has developed an enormous global following after consecutive years of outstanding vintage after vintage. Their wines are now mostly by allocation globally.

How did these wines become the hottest property in bars, bottle shops and restaurants around the world? It's anyones guess, but Domaine Moissenet-Bonnard produces mouth salivating and exceptionally crafted Chardonnay, Savagnin, Ploussard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir. With over 27 years of experience, Philippe is working with nearly 6 hectares of 30-year old vines, and farms exclusively biodynamically - officially certified in 2012. The grapes are grown at high altitudes, on limestone and clay soils, allowing a slow ripening. Typically the wine begins a long, slow maceration in fiberglass, and then is moved to large older oak barrels for maturation, which lasts about one year. Wines are of two appellations: Côtes du Jura and Arbois-Pupillin.
