Domaine des Carlines La Vouivre Chardonnay Savagnin 2017
AT FIRST SIP- Yellow nectarine, yellow apples and french pears. A hint of sunflower seed, fenugreek and curry leaf. Richer on the palate with ripe quince, green fig and custard. It is surprisingly fresher and all together leaner than the flavours would indicate, the finish leaves you with a greengage and salty lemon simpression.
About This Wine
The La Vouivre is a vineyard blend of the domaine's four named parcels - En Beaumont, Le Calvaire, En Lya, and Trémoulette. It is a Chardonnay/Savagnin blend (70/30) and majority (80%) of this wine was fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barriques while the remainder underwent fermentation in stainless steel. The proportions were blended back together and aged for a further 3 months before bottling without filtering or fining.
Domaine des Carlines was founded in 2015 by three Jura lovers, Patrick Ligeron born in Jura and specialist of exportation of French wines, François Rousset, grower and producer in Nevy sur Seille, near Chateau Chalon and Pierre Beuchet, founder of the Diva Network and owner of distillery in Pontarlier close to Jura. The opportunity came
to them end of 2015 when 5Ha of vineyards became available in the area of Chateau Chalon. They manage their site with organic and biodynamic principals and never fine or filter their wines.
