We are delighted to be working with Domaine du Pelican. Winemaker Guillaume hails from Volnay in Burgundy, so came armed with the knowledge needed for making extremely high-quality wines.
The flagship grape of the Jura region, Savagnin is brimming with personality and capable of making exceptional wines. Here, in the non-oxidative 'dry' style, it shows intriguing notes of white flowers, green tropical fruit and an enticing savoury edge, almost reminiscent of green olive. The lively palate sends waves of orchard fruit, buttery citrus and warm spice, with the floral and savoury-mineral notes lingering on the mouthwatering finish. Made using less than 5% new oak, the wine shows the true personality of this wonderful grape. The closest comparison might be something akin to the depth and richness of of top-class white Burgundy with the nerve and fruit of a dry Mosel Riesling. A real revelation, and a truly individual wine.
