A Wine That's
as salty as white wine gets. Think Himalayan rock salt—in a wine—but so much more than that. This exemplifies why Savagnin is one of the greatest white grapes in the world; a wine that's so good, it's simply impossible to score it.
This bottle is a super rare find that we would like to share with many of you. We are therefore limiting the purchase to ONE BOTTLE ONLY per customer please, thank you for your understanding!

Where and How?
This is biodynamically farmed Savagnin from several plots of different terrors (Lias and schist).
Pressed directly and fermented naturally, after which is ages for 30 months on its lees, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, without sulphites.
The Winemaker: Jean-Francois Ganevat
“It’s simple. I have always wanted to make wines that I want to drink.”
The cellar is a patchwork of different vessels; everything from old Burgundy barrels, to amphorae of all shapes and sizes and large, to old Austrian foudres. He ages the wines in the vessels that he feels suits them. The wines are almost always bottled without sulphur, but if Jean-François feels that a cuvée needs it, he'll add a "homeopathic dose." This is a method that consists of adding a micro-dose of sulphur (sometimes undetectable) but that is believed to have the same effect on the wine.
