Domaine Berthet-Bondet Savagnier
This product is currently sold out.
Jean Berthet-Bondet has been working his land since 1984. With a humble 15 hectares of 30 year old vines, this estate may well be small but it is steeped in history and heritage. Half of Jean's land is in the Château Chalon appellation which is home to the Savagnin grape, renowned for making the revered Vin Jaune.
Exclusive to the Jura, Domaine Berthet-Bondet Savagnier organic wine is harvested late and then aged in barrel for over 6 years. In that time a "voile" or layer of yeast forms on top of the wine, which gives the wine its distinctive flavour of walnuts, hazelnuts and green almonds. This is a lovely blend of exotic and lime fruits with the very typical minerality and saltiness of the Savagnin grape (not to be confused with sauvignon). A unique wine that has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years but has always been appreciated by the knowledgeable few! A truly excellent wine to be enjoyed with fish, seafood and white meat.
