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 Naturé' is made from 100% Savagnin, a local cousin of the Gewürztraminer grape. 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

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
