Notes from the Importer:  Savagnin is an extraordinary varietal which has the same DNA as the Traminer variety. Because of its multi-faceted personality, there are many different ways to work with Savagnin. In Jura, the most common use of Savagnin is for oxidative wines (sous voile), either vin jaune (which requires 6.5 years in barrel under veil), or simply Savagnin (between 2 and 5 years in barrel under veil). Savagnin ouillé, sometimes called Traminer, or Fleur de Savagnin, is the topped-up version, one that Domaine du Pélican has been producing since 2012.

As an ode to Savagnin’s many different expressions, starting with the 2018 vintage, Domaine du Pélican has decided to experiment with a skin contact cuvée. The result is a white wine fermented as if it was red, with its skins, and gives the wine additional structure without losing its tension and vibrancy.
