2018 Domaine de l'Aigle À Deux Têtes "Les Clous" Savagnin-Naturé Côtes du Jura Blanc

SKU #1477791

Established in 2005 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.

This is a beautiful example of how elegant and intelligent the Savagnin grape can be when properly tended to. It has a creamy, rich nose that is almost akin to an aged Champagne. While it is barrel-fermented and rich in aromas, the wine is also home to a beautiful acidity and boasts alluring flavors of bright citrus, tropical fruit, and toasted almonds. It has a salty minerality that leaves your palate wanting more. As with most natural white wines from the Jura region there is a little funk in the wine, but in a good/interesting way that really diversifies this bottling from the rest. Overall this is a super refreshing, acidity-driven white that would pair fabulously with lighter fare or fatty appetizers.

The Les Clous vineyard is the pride and joy of winemaker Henri Le Roy's properties. It is home to two of the most traditional varietals from the Jura region - Savagnin and Poulsard. The Savagnin is a pure ouille-style (topped off/non-oxidative). It is filled with flavors of lemon curd with a creamy texture and fine mineral finish. It is long on the palate with a vibrant core of acidity. Absolutely gorgeous stuff and a perfect crossover for those wanting to see how this grape can behave when handled by such adept hands.
