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.
100% savagnin topped up from a single vineyard called Les Molattes on the famous Jurassic Grey Marl. Manual harvest and wild fermentation in stainless then into old demi-muids for six months and bottled with a small amount of sulphur. Quite a rich and giving Savagnin here but with no shortage of salinity and acidity cleaning it all up. Very pure and focused and really enjoyable to drink. - GM Imports
