2016 Domaine Desire Petit, Arbois Pupillin, L’Essen’ciel
Made in a traditional fashion, the wine completed its fermentation in 600L oak barrels and underwent regular bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) through its first 2-3 months, and then each week until bottling. Regularly topped up to prevent oxidation and aged for 18 months in a closed demi-muid - this is unusual for Savagnin in the Jura

2016 Domaine Desire Petit, Arbois Pupillin, Savagnin
100% Savagnin fermented in oak which, as would be the case with a vin jaune, is then transferred to 228l barrels in the January after harvest and left undisturbed i.e. with no ‘ouillage’ (topping up). During this time, yeasts within the barrel create a ‘voile’, or veil, of yeast on the surface of the wine (similar to the flor produced when making sherry) which partially protects the wine from oxidation. Winemaker Damien Petit measures the extent of oxidation twice a year to monitor the devlopment of aromatics in the wine. He then allows the wine to age for up to 4 years (as opposed to the 6 years and 3 months required for vin jaune) before bottling.
