AMÉLIE VUILLET & SÉBASTIEN JACQUES
Vin Dzi 2019
Jura, France

Savagnin from clay-limestone soils in Montigny-lès-Arsures. Half is pressed directly, the other destemmed and macerated in the juice for one month before being pressed off to cuve for a year of rest. This wows with delicate aromas of citrus and minerals, perfectly judged tannins and a long, clean finish. With just a couple of cases making their way to the UK, this will be available exclusively on Tutto a Casa, with a limit of one bottle per customer.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Amélie Vuillet and Sébastien Jacques are both natives of the Jura.

Between them they have worked alongside some of the region’s great vignerons in Brignot, Bornard and Tissot. In 2011 they acquired a tiny parcel in Arbois and began making a small amount of wine for themselves and since 2013 they have sold a little of it to a lucky few. Today they farm just over a hectare of vines spread over tiny parcels around their home in Molamboz, as well as in Arbois and Montigny-lès-Arsures.

Their work in the vineyards displays the utmost respect for nature. They rarely use treatments and work the soil on horseback with a real focus on the plant’s development. Likewise, in the cellar they work with gravity and without temperature control, filtration or any additions in the hope of offering as pure a reflection of place as possible.

These beautiful, vivacious wines are truly one of a kind.
