2016 Domaine de l'Aigle À Deux Têtes Savagnin-Naturé "Les Clous" Côtes du Jura Blanc (Previously $30)

SKU #1356212

Established in 2004 by Henri Le Roy in the Côtes du Jura, Domaine de l'Aigle À Deux Têtes focuses on producing terroir-driven wines from local varietals. The 'Le Clous' is made from 100% Savagnin, known in his sub-region as Naturé. Savagnin is in the Traminer family of grape varieties, a close cousin of Gewurztraminer, though Savagnin is much more citrus driven with high acitiy and a mineral focused palate. The wine is barrel-fermented to bring richness and texture to the grapefruit-centered citrus flavors, while a hint of tropical papaya plays a beautiful foil to the strident minerality that the Jura is known for in its wines.

Savagnin (no relation to Sauvignon Blanc) makes the famed Vin Jaune wines of the Jura but this is an ouillé (topped off) style that is bursting with lemon grass, green papaya and pear notes. A touch of spice from barrel aging rounds out the wine. It is remarkable!

Those enamored with the white burgundy will immediately find the shades of vanillin, smoke and bright fruit very pleasant on this nose. The bright and racy acidity is only mellowed by a year on oak. Made of the fiercely ageworthy grape savagnin, but vinified in elevage not unlike the Chardonnays from the 1er Cru vineyards of Puligny. Indeed the wine here is neither Savagnin nor the Burgundy you are used to; although its minerality and elegance similarly lends itself with brightness to the overtones of stone fruit in the mouth. This is a hugely versatile wine, but pairs very well with seafood. You'll find it just as eclectic a pairing as a fino sherry, but in an unabashed burgundian style of winemaking proudly expressive of the terroir.
Drink from 2018 to 2025
