About

About the Wine

Jura is a small region, on the border of France and Switzerland. Lately, it has been the go-to region for wine-geeks like us. There are some stunningly complex and interest driven wines being produced here, with a strong focus and dedication to tradition.

The fruit is sourced from younger vines, saw 18 hours on skins and maturation in both stainless steel and neutral oak. This has resulted in an extremely floral wine - orange petals, jasmine and rose - with a taut structure and cleansing finish. There is an almond drive to the wine as well, thanks to time under flor, making this both a refined and traditional expression of white Jura.

About Domaine Courbet

Domaine Courbet is one of Jura's rising stars. The family have been making wine since 1869 and remain focused on the region's traditions and dedicated to quality. Over the years, the estate has transformed from a polyculture (grapes, grain and livestock) to being solely fixed on viticulture.

Father and son team, Jean-Marie and Damien Courbet, control a mere 7.5 hectares of vine, all of which are farmed biodynamically, with a conversion to organics underway. Given the small amount of wines they produce, Domaine Courbet get a lot of attention - half of their vines are located below Chateau Chalon, the most well regarded appellation of the region. With their uncompromising approach to winemaking, it is little wonder that they are on the must-have lists across wine bars and collectors across Europe.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Grown in the Marnes Bleues clay soil that are unique to this region and that Savagnin excels in. Why “L’Origine”? Because Savagnin is one of the oldest varietals and is actual the base for many other grapes grown today. This small cuvée come from young vines that are crushed and put through a skin maceration for 18 hours. The fermentation and aging process takes place half in neutral oak barrels and half in stainless steel tank. The result is a very floral wine that is the true expression of Savagnin. This wine is topped up or ouillé during the aging process in barrel.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
