Le Clos des Grives Savagnin 'Solitaire'


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Savagnin

Vintage: 2017

Le Clos des Grives is a legendary Jura domaine and the very first to be certified organic in the region way back in 1968. Today there are 4 hectares of prime south/southwest facing vines growing in marl limestone at 330-350m above sea level, all harvested by hand and made into no less than 10 different cuvées.

Solitaire is Savagnin from 35 year old vines aged for 30 months in barrel under flor without topping up. A powerful, intense baby vin jaune with an incredible array of flavours including walnuts, baking spices, citrus blossom and celery culminating in a massive, savoury finish.
