Arbois Savagnin, Domaine Daniel Dugois, Arbois 2016
Domaine Daniel Dugois, Arbois.
The domaine was founded by Daniel in 1973 and is situated at the heart of the 'golden triangle' of the Jura - between Arbois, Salins-les-Bains and Poligny - in the village of Arsures, 5km from Arbois itself. There are 9 hectares of vines in total - all tended according to the semi-organic method of 'lutte raisonée' - and the soil is composed mainly of clay, marl and gravel - perfectly suited to the cultivation of the Trousseau grape of which Daniel is a specialist. Today, Daniel is assisted by his son, Philippe, who produced his first vintage in 2003.
With amazing aromas of fresh curry powder with fenugreek to the fore and a palate of bruised apples, fresh walnut, vanilla and caramel. Serve with foie gras, chicken with morels, trout with almnds and various cheeses.
