2018 Arbois Traminer, Savignin Ouillé, Bénédicte et Stéphane Tissot, Jura
Unlike the Savagnin barrels that go into the production of vin jaune and Château-Chalon, these are topped up regularly, protecting the wine from developing the characteristic oxidative notes of those wines. Instead this is fresh, bright, and vibrant with a pithy, waxy citrus fruit energy. An increasingly popular style, nevertheless still produced in tiny quantities.
