Loreline Laborde of Les Granges Pâquenesses is originally from Montpellier and learnt her trade working with several top winemakers in the Rhone. After falling in love with the Jura and its wines, she determined to set up on her own and did so in 2010, converting a ramshackle rented farm into a house and cave among 2.5 hectares of vines.

Dynamic plus, she tends a herd of goats and flock of chickens in her ‘spare’ time, and tending a vegetable garden too, she is pretty well self-sufficient. She also gave birth one week before the 2014 harvest, but simply put her baby into a sling whilst she carried on her work (and had her second child during the 2016 vinifications!).

This is an excellent example of topped up Savagnin with lovely richness balanced with the classic savagnin acidity. A really versatile food matching wine and definitely worth a punt.
