2015 Savagnin Typé, Domaine Overnoy

Four years sous-voile and two in bottle, or under-the-veil wine making.  Wow! here is complexity - citric, saline in the mouth and complexed by curry leaf, saffron and baking spices. Has super length and complexity with a finish that goes on an on.. gastronomic and salivating all at once. This is quite remarkable..

The first thing you notice is the name, Overnoy. This one is not to be confused with the legendary estate in Pupillin although Guillame's Grandfather was a brother to Pierre Overnoy and their Poulsard is propagated from cuttings from Arbois-Pupillin.

This estate is located in Orbagna, in the south of the Jura in the region of Sud Revermont. They are not too far away from Rotalier, home to the famous estates of Labet and Ganevat.

This is an estate to watch, the talent is there, as is passion and support. I feel lucky to have discovered this estate before it's inevitable rise to stardom!
