A great wine blended from Charodnnay, Savagnin and Melon a Queue Rouge. Although delicious we hope this wine does not gate made too often as it was born out of a disastrous frost year. All parcels had to be blended as there were not enough white grapes to make single varietal wines. Dense and opulent this is a beautiful wine born from a bad vintage.
Notes on the producer
After studying enology in Beaune and working several years at the cooperative in Pupillin, Fabrice Dodane started working at Domaine de Saint Pierre in 1989 as manager. Fabrice took full control of the estate in 2011 after the untimely death of the former owner. The winery is based in the small town of Matheny and covers approximately 6ha in the Arbois and Côtes du Jura AOCs with the vines planted in limestone and marl soils. Saint Pierre achieved organic certification in 2012, having started conversion in 2002. All wines are fermented with native yeasts either in tank or neutral barrel. Vinifications for the reds are done without the addition of sulphur, and the whites are done flawlessly in both the traditional sous voile method, as well as topped-up, or ouillé style.
