This blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin is made with a small amount of non-ouillé wine, giving it a unique character. More info

This cuvée is a blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin that are grown biodynamically in low yields (30 hl/ha) on chalk- and clay-rich soil. The harvests are carried out by hand and the vinification is traditional (ouillé), involving pneumatic pressing, and alcoholic fermentation in vats at controlled temperatures with indigenous yeasts. The wine is then matured in casks, apart from a small proportion of Savagnin which is matured sous voile. The wine is lightly filtered before bottling. In the glass, it gives off aromas of fresh and candied fruit. It ahs a gentle attack on the palate and evolves on a lovely balance, finishing off on a good, acidic note. This wine can be enjoyed today or in 5 to 6 years' time. At the table, serve it with a dish like seafood or vegetable tart.

Arbois Cuvée d'Automne Domaine de la Pinte serve at a temperature of 13°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Haddock fumé aux agrumes, Linguine aux girolles, Gâteau aux noix.

Information about domain La Pinte

Founded in 1953 by Roger Martin, Domaine de la Pinte is found in the lieu-dit “La Pinte à la Capitaine” on the blue marl of Lias, at the heart of Arbois. Roger planted 14 hectares of Savagnin upon arrival, making it the largest grower of this varietal at the time. Today it's his son Pierre Martin who keeps the wheels turning. The domain has been extended to cover 34 hectares today (with 17 hectares of Savagnin, 6 of Chardonnay, 7 of Poulsard, 4 of Trousseau and Pinot noir), all planted across Arbois and Pupillin. Since 1999 the domain has been organic, and it took the step to biodynamics in 2009. The soils are ploughed only on the surface to avoid destructuring them; compost and manure are used to create a harmony between different elements of the earth. The harvests are carried out by hand. Once in the winery, the vinification begins with indigenous yeasts and sulphur is used in limited quantities. The wine is matured in casks, demi-muids, and foudre containers for a duration that depends on the varietals used and the cuvée being made. There is no new wood used to avoid marking the wine. This maturation occurs on fine lees with stirring that follows the lunar calendar. The result of all these efforts is certainly a good one, so this is a domain to discover in haste!
