Orbagna, Jura, France
The sweet perfumed fruit gives way to nutty, oxidised tones that are intentional and at delicate levels that don’t overwhelm the fruit. The greatest pleasure comes from the palate, which is incredibly complex and downright moreish. Vibrant yet soft in texture, with saline acidity that was perfectly judged at picking time, everything is in harmony. Very long and complex and a superb wine to have at the table! - Andrew Guard (importer)
All vines are hand tended and farmed organically, always have been.
Made using the technique of sous-voile, or under-the-veil wine making. The barrels are not entirely filled to begin with, and then are not topped up as the wine evaporates and seeps into the wood. A beneficial layer of yeast (the veil) is encouraged, somewhat akin to the flor in Sherry. Aged for three years in barrel.
