The 2014 was still not bottled, so I tasted the 2013 CĂ´tes du Jura Savagnin, the traditional white aged in barrique under a veil of yeasts for three years. The nose had a strong strike of green nuts, notions of curry and spices. The palate is super tasty, with lively acidity and pungent, marked flavors. Some 2,000 bottles were produced in the challenging 2013 vintage.
