Domaine du Pélican Arbois 'Grand Curloulet' Savagnin Ouillé 2018
- 6 in stock
Domaine d'Angerville is best known as a leading biodynamic producer in Volnay, but since 2012 they have been making some stunning wine in the Jura as Domaine du Pélican. Their vineyards include five hectares previously belonging to the legendary Jacques Puffeney (now retired) and everything is farmed biodynamically. The wines were superb - elegant and wonderfully refined - from the start and just keep getting better. Grand Curoulet is one of the best terroirs in Arbois. The Savagnin is fermented in foudres and barrels, and aged in 500l used oak barrels. It has lovely freshness, together with a richness from the oak.
A little more oak sweetness on the nose but not on the palate. More tension than on the straight Arbois Savagnin 2018, more intensity. Endless and endlessly fresh. Impressive to get this much concentration from young vines
