If Savagnin & White Burgundy were BFFs.
Chablis-lovers - pay attention to this 100% unfined, unfiltered, zero sulfur Savagnin from Bottes Rouges. Savagnin - also known as Traminer and Heida in Switzerland - is an aromatic varietal that thrives in mountainous, cool climate terrain. Though Savagnin is typically done in more oxidative styles in the Côtes du Jura, this expression was done in the ouillé method, for a fresher feel. Juicy, ripe, and textured.
