Domaine de la Tournelle Terre de Gryphees

Domaine de la Tournelle Terre de Gryphees


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2017

Pascal and Evelyne of Domaine de la Tournelle have been winemaking in Jura since 1991 and though they were certified organic in 2010, have been working biodynamically for at least 10 years before that. They now have 7 hectares of vines planted with Savagnin, Chardonnay, Trousseau and Ploussard.

Terre de Gryphees is their exquisite Chardonnay aged for 2 years in oak before bottling without sulphur. A precise and powerful expression of Chardonnay with pastry, hazelnut and spice aromas cut through with invigorating green apple acidity. A memorable wine and for us one of the best examples of this variety in the Jura.
