Arbois Fleur de Savagnin MAGNUM 2020 Domaine de la Tournelle, biodynamic Jura wine, grey marne soils, 18 months in topped up barrels to prevent oxidation.  An elegant non oxidative style of this amazing grape variety. The Fleur de Savagnin has classic varietal aromas of pith and salty white fruits and apple with a note of something earthy or cheesy. On the palate, it is medium bodied and strong but with great acidity and a slight salty twang. If you don’t like the more common oxidised version of this variety then try Fleur de Savagnin with some Jura cheese, it is a magnificent pairing.  The Magnum will age majestically, a special bottle for a special occasion.

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.
