A Wine That
LITTLEWINE HQ keeps returning to. In the world of natural wine, there are always new things to try, but we're so obsessed with this cuvée that it's become a permanent feature in our wine fridge. Think salt, lemon curd, with a sappy edge, this is the kind of wine that'll linger on your tongue for hours on end.

Where and How?
This is from 25-year-old Savagnin vines, planted in light sandy soils, from the lieu dit of La Pierre in Pupillin. where the 25yo vines are planted in a light, sandy soil.
The wine ferments naturally and is aged in old oak barrels (topped up, so a fresh style).
The Winemaker: Les Granges Paquenesses
Loreline Laborde of Les Granges Pâquenesses is a one-woman / one-horse (named Amazone) band, based in Tourmont, near Poligny. She cut her winemaking teeth in the Rhône Valley, but like so many others, fell in love with the Jura wine region. She tends 2.5 hectares of vines, a vegetable garden, and also keeps goats and chickens.
She tends her vineyards of Savagnin, Chardonnay, Trousseau and Poulsard organically with biodynamic methods. Her wines are made as hands-off as possible, ageing in older oak barrels and being bottled unfined and unfiltered. She picks a little earlier than average, resulting in taut, mineral, focused wines. Her Savagnin is one of LITTLEWINE’s all-time favourite expressions of the variety: see for yourself!
