The Jura expression "un vin typé" means the wine was aged sous voile (under flor). From the same 0.8ha as the savagnin ouillé, the wine was aged under flor a good three years before being bottled off without sulphites. Deep and complex, this 'typé' has the perfect balance between fruit and 'goût de jaune' (flor flavours) – a stunning effort from Guillaume who displayed talent at a young age, he was 22yo then!

Notes on the producer

The domaine was created in 1982 when Jean-Louis Overnoy took over the family’s polyculture farm and decided to produce wine for a living. In 2014, Jean-Louis passed the baton to his son Guillaume (20yo then) who has converted the 5.5ha to organic as well as reducing the production of crémant and vins sous voile for more ouillé style wines. The 'coeur historique' of the domaine is located in Orbagna (lieu-dit En Poinot), 2.9ha where four generations of the family have planted vines.

Guillaume also tends 2ha of 40-50yo vines above the neighbouring village of Beaufort on a stunning coteau known as the Clos Jervigny. The remaining 0.6ha are located in Cesancey and were planted by Jean-Louis in 2001. The five main Jura grapes are planted in the different locations and soil types. 

Guillaume's inspiration in the cellar naturally comes from his great-uncle Pierre Overnoy who he visits on a regular basis. Guillaume keeps experimenting and aims for sulphur-free winemaking even though he cheekily comments, "this is more difficult than it sounds!" One of the keys to success is long élevage on fine lees – from the 2019 vintage the ageing of the whites has been extended to two years minimum, one year for the reds. The family owns a stunning ancient underground cellar where the wines age in 4 to 10yo pièces bourguignonnes (228ltr) and 500ltr barriques.
