2017 Sylvain Faudot Cuvee Saint Antoine Arbois Jura France
This is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Savignin, aged separately. The Chardonnay barrels are topped up to prevent oxidation while the Savignin is exposed to oxygen. The nose shows a seaside flor, with nuts, a hit of white flowers, butterscotch, and preserved citrus peel. The palate is just lighter than moderate with Indian subcontinent spices, nuts, and some tropical fruits. D&M Tasting Notes
Created in 1998, this 6 hectare estate, conducted in sustainable agriculture, modernized its winery in 2005, in particular by equipping it with automatic thermoregulation.
Located in the heart of the Jura mountain in the village of Arbois, Michel Faudot is a descendent of 135 years of family winemaking. While he doesn't adhere to organic standards he comes as close as he can on the 12 hectares vineyard. Domaine Martin Faudot is: 5 grapes (Pinot Noir, Trousseau, Poulsard, Chardonnay and Savagnin), 17 wines, and 7 categories (reds, whites, vin jaune, sparkling, sweet, fortified and eau-de-vie), not to mention dozens of varieties of smoked charcuterie hanging in the cellar.
