True artisans of the land, Fabrice and Valérie Closset-Gaziaux acquired 5 hectares of Jura vineyards in 2008 which they immediately converted to organic and biodynamic. Their backgrounds are in Earth Sciences and were advisers to growers in the Loire valley on organic practices. They have always loved working in vineyards and when the opportunity presented itself, with a retired vigneron in Gevingey, they jumped and didn’t look back.
"Probably one of my favourite sous voile wines right now. This is essentially the cuvee Castor base wine with 50% Chardonnay and 50% Savagnin all manual harvest and into stainless for fermentation. After blending it is transferred to old 225L barrels where it spends 30 months under a veil of yeast before being bottled with a small amount of sulphur.
Nut husk, preserved lemon, brush, lime blossom, dried stone fruits and a lick of iodine. Very good balance of rich Chard fruit and the more austere Savagnin. Loads of salinity and curry spices with a long front to back drive that carries all the flavours well. So moreish. " GM Imports
