Domaine de la Borde 'Naturé, Foudre à Canon' Savagnin Ouillé Arbois Pupillin 2019
- In stock, ready to ship
38 year-old vines on schistes-carton, a fine, brittle, broken-up type of schist. 50% whole cluster fermentation, aged in 1200L and 1500L Stockinger barrel for two years, topped-up or ouillé. The wine is ripping. Great acidity but also a focused, pleasurable core of cream, saline, and mineral texture. A tangy, gingery edge rounds it out. Still fairly taut, it will only get better. Julien Marschal is making some very impressive wines that manage to feel understated and elegant while simultaneously blowing your mind.
