Product Description:

"Jean Michel makes several different wines from the Savagnin grape. We prefer 'Les Terrasses' because it’s a non-oxidative style and shows incredible minerality. The vines are about 25-years-old, and the wine is fermented in large, used oak foudres. Savagnin is so acidic as a grape that it has to be picked quite late so that it’s balanced. He only makes 300 cases."

"After spending several years abroad making wine, Jean-Michel Petite returned to his small village of Pupillin to take over his family domaine in 1990. When Jean-Michel bought his vineyards, he always asked the previous owners what each vineyard expressed. None of them knew because everyone, even Jean-Michel's parents, had always sold to the cooperative. Consequently, Jean-Michel decided to start from scratch, vinifying each parcel separately to discover how the gray marl provided a different expression of terroir from the red marl. His priorities are to respect the soil and produce quality wines. He has converted all his vineyards to lutte raisonée or organic and now owns 6.5 hectares in the best area of the Arbois." -Importer
