Domaine de la Pinte Savagnin 2007
Old school Jura Savagnin style, this spent 5 years in oak. It’s every bit the fusty oxidative style, with mothball and a hint of decay, if still firm to finish. Briney and salty. It’s nutty and long but it’s in a pretty odd place – neither rich enough to carry things and not in a primary fruit phase. It’s clean for the style though. Will probably live forever and not a bad single glass drink. Drink: 2015-2020. 16.5/20, 88/100+
