Les Dolomies Arco 2017
This wine is definitely something special. 100% Savignin from 35 year old vines on stony marlstone in Jura, France.
Les Dolomies is the wine making project of Céline and Steve Gormally, both with a wealth of experience in the industry having been trained at the Domaines Labet, Badoz and St Pierre.The name Arco is hailed from one of the two donkeys that help haul all the grapes up the steep, rocky slopes during harvest. This wine is the result of wild yeast fermentation and bottled without fining or filtration which is actually the norm in this area of France. No sulphur comes into contact with the wine as of 2020 adding to its clarity and depth.
On the palate this wine has razor sharp acidity that is balanced out by vibrant citrus flavours and backed up with some lovely minerality and a long saline finish.
