Arbois-Pupillin "Les Terrasses" 2021 Domaine de La Renardiere
The Arbois-Pupillin 'Les Terrasses' 2021 from Domaine de La Renardiere is a pure Savagnin that embodies the oenological diversity of the unique Jura wine region. Fresh yet structured, it reveals citric and saline notes balanced by a enveloping smoothness. A product of artisanal and environmentally respectful practices, this white wine fully expresses the authenticity of the area. Founded in 1990 by Jean-Michel and Laurence Petit, the winery has embraced organic and biodynamic methods since 2010, achieving organic certification in 2012.
The terraced vineyards, giving life to 'Les Terrasses,' thrive on clay-limestone soils rich in gray, blue, and black marls. Fermentation occurs in 400-liter barrels with indigenous yeasts, followed by twelve months of aging in oak barrels. The result is a wine with a pale yellow color and golden reflections.
The bouquet offers aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, dried fruit, and saline nuances. The palate is enveloping, with balanced acidity and persistence, highlighting the complexity and a slight oxidative note typical of Jura wines. A surprising white that unveils the extraordinary potential of the region and its role in the new frontiers of artisanal wines.
