Domaine Pierre Richard, Côtes du Jura 'La Chouette' Blanc

Write a Review

Vintage: 2021

Varietals: Chardonnay & Savagnin

Farming: Organic

Fermented in amphora after 2 days of skin contact, the wine is soft and generous on the palate, with stunning notes of white pear, apple blossom and soft yellow flowers, backed by mouthwatering freshness and a finish that is both delicate and lingering.

From 40 year old vines (converted organic in 2018), grapes were hand harvested and vineyard sorted in September of 2019. These undergo a cold soak for 4 days, and spend 2 days on their skins. These are then left to ferment (spontaneously; ambient yeast) for 35 days in earthen amphora. This spends 12 months on its lees and was bottled in August of 2020 before being released in 2021.
