Les Bottes Rouges Face B
Jean-Baptiste Menigoz of Domaine Les Bottes Rouges began his working life in Arbois as a special needs teacher before becoming increasingly interested in natural wine through his good friend and esteemed Jura vigneron Raphael Monnier of Ratapoil. Jean-Baptiste now has 7 hectares of organic vines around Arbois and works with native yeast and no sulphur or other additions for all his wines.
Savagnin ‘Face B’ (B side) comes from vineyard planted in 2003 on limestone. Fermented in 400l barrel and aged in 3,000l foudre, this is serious, archetypal 'topped up' Savagnin with powerful body and acidity with notes of toasted hazelnut and a saline bite. Will only improve with age!
