Lulu Savagnin 2016

Lulu Savagnin 2016

$85.00

Ludwig Bindernagel emanates from Bavaria in Germany, working as an architect in Paris until he changed track and moved to the Jura in 2003.

After learning his craft with Julien Labet who inspired him to make wine in a natural way, he started to buy the odd small parcel of older vines in L’Étoile and Château-Chalon on the rare occasions that these became available. However, Ludwig’s main interest here was to make topped-up wines to be aged in older barrels.

He has a deep underground cellar underneath his rambling house in Poligny where his wines age very slowly, never hurried along by Ludwig. He favours an earlier harvest to capture acidity and ensure alcohol is never too high making beautifully crafted wines, very subtle, detailed and precise with sulphur levels a low 20mg/l. His wife Nathalie is a very accomplished chef and runs a fine bed and breakfast, also offering dinner, so you can try their wines in situ.

His Savagnin is of course incredibly oxidative, fresh, with lemon zest, Jasmine, and a rich sweet savoury mix of body. Would pair well with a washed rind cheese, or even a sharp cheddar.

Description

Floral, Fruity, Basically the Gesha of Wine from Winemaker Ludwing Bindernagel

The Jura wine Region sits on the French Border with Switzerland and is basically that most idillic French Village that we’d all likely retire to if we didn’t watch Escape to the Chateau.

Known for producing Savagnin, Jura’s wines are oxidative, Fresh, and quite unique as French stylings go. Their whites are more vibrant, and their reds are generally lighter, Pinot Noir, Poulsard, Trousseau for example.

Jura shares a similar climate to the Yarra Valley, but with vastly different limestone soils (as opposed to our local Loams) yielding a more Mineral focused wine.

There are 6 Different Appelations within Jura,

Cotes Du Jura
Arbois (Don’t make the same mistake I make, its Arr Bwaah)
Cremant Du Jura: For Sparkling
L’Etoile
Macvin du Jura: Mostly for late harvest sweet wine.

In addition to Wine, Jura is a popular Skiing destination.
