Domaine Désiré Petit, Savagnin ‘L’Essen’ciel’, Arbois-Pupillin 6 Bottle Case 75cl
Equivalent Bottle Price £19
Slightly feral and edgy, full but not oxidised, this is lively as hell and a fascinating insight to Jura Savagnin. With aromas of citrus oils and subtle notes from the wood it has matured in, this has minerality and a marked hazelnut character. Long and elegant, with a very slight hint of aniseed on the finish. A wine that highlights that fact that Jura is a backwater well worth exploring, where time is not a constant and where danger is part of the fun you can have.
