Soils: Clay + Limestone
Vinification: This is a topped up Savagnin sourced in Montigny-les-Arsures and farmed by Domaine du Pelican. Yves was in charge of the vinifiaction whcih was carried out in tonneau over 24 months.
Notes from the Importer: This project, known as O2Y (Olivier, Yves, and Yoshi), focuses on meticulous sourcing of top-quality, biodynamically-farmed grapes from neighbouring regions. These grapes are then vinified at Olivier's facility in Poligny. The approach employed for these wines mirrors the one used for their domaine wines, resulting in exceptional outcomes thus far.
Climate-induced anxiety, characterised by recurring spring frosts in April and subsequent hailstorms in July and August, has once again taken a toll impact on Jura and its terroir in 2021. To address the shortage of local grapes, Olivier, Yves, and Yoshi have decided to broaden their sourcing efforts for the second release of O2Y, collaborating with growers from various regions, some closer to their home than others. Nevertheless, they have maintained the relationships forged with the farmers of 2020, with whom strong bonds have been established. Consequently, alongside the introduction of new cuvées, Pourquoi Non? and Vinum Bibo, the familiar favourites from the previous vintage, are also making a comeback.
