This is a small wonder of oxidative Savagnin using a lovely wine from my friend Philippe Bornard, one of the best Jura wine-makers!" Nathalie says of her latest creation.
Savagnin is a grape variety with small green or yellow clusters, closely related to the grape Gewürztraminer. Grown on limestone and clay soils almost exclusively at high altitude in the Jura in France's Savoie region. They slowly ripen to produce the famed Vin Jaune wines that are a perfect expression of the Jura. Located between Burgundy and Switzerland, it has a cool climate and is geographically isolated, which has helped producers there to retain traditional techniques and indigenous grape varieties like Trousseau and Savagnin.
Celebrated Jura wine-maker Philippe Bornard lives at the top of the village of Pupillin, near Arbois, farming about six hectares of 30 year-old vines that he inherited from his father. He has become one of the region’s most exciting natural, biodynamic winemakers. Acetified and aged over five years in barrel, Nathalie's vinegar has a beautiful, nutty, savoury, umami quality and delicate acidity and aroma. It has a glorious pale straw colour and flavour notes of grapefruit, almonds and hazelnuts just like the original wine.
