Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Domaine Ratte Nature jura, france
$79

In the town of Arbois, you will find this small domaine run by husband and wife team Michel-Henri and Françoise Ratte.
"Naturé" is the old school name of Savagnin. This wine is from a single vineyard called Pré Levront just below Corvées. The vines are 20 years old, but a small part was planted by Francoise's great-grandfather over 100 years ago. Soil is blue and gray marl and all grapes are harvested and sorted in the vineyard by hand. Slow horizontal hydraulic press into stainless for wild fermentation. Upbringing in old oak barrels from Meursault and bottled the following year without filtration and very little sulphur.
