Grape(s): 100% Savagnin 

Localization: Arbois, Jura, France

Tasting Notes: This Savagnin ouille cuvée will bring the aromatic typicity of the grape variety and the character of the Jura terroir. Between the floral notes, a saline hint in the mid-palate and the finish with a mineral freshness, this wine will be a real pleasure to discover, from the aperitif to the cheese platter, while passing through rich starters such as foie. fatty, or white fish dishes. It will be ideal for bringing freshness and delicacy to the start of your meal.

Notes: After primary and secondary fermentation in glass fiber tanks, the wine is aged for 8 months in 228-liter and 300-liter barrels (a common aging method in other regions where vin jaune is used in the Jura region). It is characterized by oxidative aging, and is called the traditional manufacturing method). The title ``Prélude'' means ``prelude'' and emphasizes that this Savagnin is not oxidatively aged, but is aged non-oxidatively with supplementary alcohol.

Very quickly, the desire to have one's own farm was felt. He reached this first milestone in 2003 by renting 1 ha of vines which he would later purchase and by integrating the Fruitière Vinicole d’ARBOIS (FVA) as a cooperator.

For several years, he therefore combined work as an employee and operator while he expanded his surface area. In 2012, he was finally able to devote himself entirely to his 7 hectares of vines and develop different cultivation practices.

However, gradually the desire to vinify your harvest and present your products is becoming more and more insistent. he therefore decided in 2017 to leave the FVA to embark on a new professional and family adventure, that of Domaine Les 5 Wy…
