Domaine Overnoy, Côtes-Du-Jura, Au Vignet
This wine is made from a strain of chardonnay called ‘muscaté’ (Chardonnay Muscaté) for its enticing aromatics. It also has a darker pinkish skin. Guillaume found this rare strain among old vines and decided to propagate it through massal selection – he planted Au Vignet in 2015. Vinified as per the reds in the range, it macerated for 18 days (grapes were not crushed), and was then aged for two years in old barrels. Aromatic and opulent, it’s lifted by fresh tannins inducing lovely bitters and salivation. A surprising and extremely enjoyable wine.
