Ambre de Savagnin Tournelle, biodynamic skin contact wine, rich, round, elegant, salty, savoury, complex, simply delicious natural wine.  Grapes are hand-harvested in small baskets. Cool temperature fermentation takes place in tanks with indigenous yeasts. The second part of the fermentation is done in old Burgundy barrels with the skins. The malolactic fermentation happens naturally the following spring.  Barrels are topped up every 10 days without sulfites for a minimum of 18 months ageing. Bottled according to the biodynamic calendar with a light filtration and 0 to 15mg of sulfites added at bottling.  The Roles Royce of Orange wines.

Evelyne Clairet owns 7 hectares in the region around Arbois, the famous wine growing capital of the Jura.

She farms biodynamically and follows Maria Thun's calender in all the operations.  At Tournelle they tend to use no sulphur at bottling, but sometimes add 2 or 3 grams per litre earlier in the wine making. Unlike many Jura producers, they are looking in general to avoid oxygen in most of their wines to keep the freshness of the fruit. Their wines are a combination of golden Chardonnay fruit and Jura minerals. They are linear and precise and have the most incredible texture of any Chardonnay we have tasted. Top Burgundy wines sell for incredible prices.  But in terms of quality, complexity and sheer pleasure in drinking, we have not come across many Chardonnay that rival the wines of Domaine de la Tournelle.  Their Savagnin is also of outstanding quality, and they make some fascinating and unique reds.
