Les Corvées sous Curon

Les Corvées sous Curon

This wine is issued from the well regarded Les Corvées site rich in gravel, limestone and clay. It is pressed in whole bunches and after the juice has had approximately 12 hours to settle, it is then racked to older Burgundy barrel rangings in age from 2 – 15 years for the primary fermentation. The wine is aged from 18 – 24 months and is stirred, bâtonnage, as often as the vintage demands, in order to add richness and complexity. The barrels are topped up, ouillage, every 10 days.

A Chardonnay with a more linear and profound mineral expression than its Terre de Gryphée counterpart. A rival for the great Chardonnays of the Côte de Beaune.

Fleur de SavagninThis wine lies at one end of the spectrum marking the range of style that Savagnin, the region’s most celebrated white varietal, can produce.

Savagnin de VoileThe same process which produces the Vin Jaune is employed here to produce a sort of half way house to its more famous sibling.

Vin JauneAged for 6 years and 3 months in 5 year old Burgundy barrels which are purposefully not topped off as the wine slowly evaporates.

L’uva ArbosianaThe thin skinned Ploussard (Poulsard) grape makes a faintly colored red wine, more floral than fruity, with little or no tannin and although certainly red, inhabits the soul of a rosé wine.

Trousseau des CorvéesAnother of the Jura’s unique red varietals, the Trousseau grape makes a slightly darker and more structured wine than does Ploussard while still maintaining a bright personality…
