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.
Early picked fruit from their vines in Gevingey of 70% chardonnay and 30% savagnin. The wine is aged for 12 months on lees before being disgorged with zero dosage. Nice fruit richness to this wine, leesy, bread dough, stone fruits. The savagnin brings a nice acid line to the wine cleaning the richer chard fruit up. Beautifully crafted, I think I'll take two.
