Wine Region: Jura - France
Grape: 100% Savagnin
Tasting Notes: Powerful and complex wine. On the nose, aromas of walnuts, spices, celery and curry. On the palate, this wine has an almost atypical smoothness and a remarkable length.
Expert Rating: Heiner Lobenberg Uber 97+/100
"The nose of this Vin Jaune is amazingly fine. Of course, we also have the power, the deep spice, nuttiness, fresh earth, the salty, almost spicy in this wine, but at the same time the wine is very elegant and precise."
About the winery:
As the first Jura estate to use organic farming methods, Le Clos des Grives is Ecocert certified since 1968.
Le Clos des Grives was created in 1962 by Mr. Gaston CHARBONNIER, a pioneer in organic viticulture. Claude CHARBONNIER, after the death of his father in 1982, took over and continued to cultivate the vineyard in an environmentally friendly way. In 2007, Claude CHARBONNIER decided to sell his business to François PETITE. The latter will invest in 2011 in a building to house the winery and outbuildings. In April 2017, Benoit MULIN, his cousin Christophe MULIN, and a few other shareholders acquired the estate.
The Clos des Grives now owns more than four hectares of AOC Cotes du Jura. The five Jura grape varieties are vinified in the cellar: Chardonnay and Savagnin for the white wines, Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau for the reds.
