White wine. Arbois Pupillin, Jura, France. Biodynamic. 100% Savagnin. "The 2015 Arbois Pupillin Savagnin Ouillé Foudre A Canon Nature was exceptionally bottled after only 12 months in foudre (it's normally a lot more), as Julien Mareschal thought the wine was ready and tasted good after that amount of time. Additionally, acidity was not very high, so he decided to bottle it earlier than in other vintages. The Savagnin is made in the same way as Chardonnay, partially destemmed (50%) and fermented with natural yeasts in foudre where the wine ages. The soils here are gray and blue marls soils from Lias and schiste carton, a kind of soft slate that breaks like cardboard. The wine has a smoky, flinty note in the nose and beautiful aromas of tangerine peel and a vibrant palate, with some salty notes in the aftertaste. Mareschal has two hectares of Savagnin, so depending on the vintage, if he makes a sur voile Savagnin or not, quantities vary. 2015 was a short vintage, and he didn't make any oxidative wine that year, so 3,000 bottles were filled in September 2017." — 90 Points, Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate #234 (Dec. 2017)
