Rijckaert Cotes du Jura Les Sarres Savagnin 2022

A crisp, nutty, and mineral-infused light-bodied white wine made from 100% Savagnin grapes in France's Jura region. Jean Rijckaert focuses on minimal mechanical intervention, favoring manual labor and plowing the soil to deepen the vines' roots, enhancing the terroir's expression. The vineyard avoids insecticides and rot agents, using natural yeast. The "Les Sarres" single vineyard Savagnin is hand-harvested and aged in neutral oak barrels for 22 months, offering a refreshing acidity that balances its complex, nutty flavors developed from extended lees contact. Jean values customer enjoyment over high scores.
