Domaine de la Renardière

 

Domaine de la Renardière

The commune of Pupillin is home to the estate and vineyards of Domaine de la Renardière. Here, vigneron Jean-Michel Petit farms and vinifies a range of red and white wines that are arguably some of the best wines in the Jura. The domaine was established in 1990, and presently encompasses 7.5 hectares of vineyards. Half of Jean-Michel’s production is devoted to red (Pinot Noir, Poulsard, Trousseau) and half to white wine (mostly chardonnay, with a bit of Savagnin).

Since 2003 all vineyard practices and applications have been organic. The domaine acheived organic certification in 2012. In the cellar, Jean-Michel adheres to traditional methods of winemaking. Fermentation takes place via native yeasts, and sulfur additions are only utilized when deemed necessary. Elevage takes place in foudres for the red wines, and a combination of older barrique and foudre for the white wines.

Lovely floral and blanched almonds on the nose. Lightly chewy texture, balance by a thread of mineral and acidity on the lengthy finish.

 

Domaine de la Renardière Arbois-Pupillin Savagnin 2011

Jean-Michel Petit’s non-ouillé version of Savagnin, which spends 40 months aging in barrel. A Lovely, complex and subtle oxidative notes, complemented by a long and fine finish.
