Savagnin is perhaps France’s most under-rated white variety. It’s a grape capable of producing anything from the meditative, layered vin jaune to something like this which shows all the crystalline fruit, whipcrack acidity and wonderful minerality of a wine that, if it were grown just a few miles away across the Bresse plain in Burgundy, would be twice the price.

Domaine de la Loue

Catherine Hannoun is based in Port Lesney, a small commune about 15 minutes north of Arbois which exudes the tranquility many associate with the hills of Jura. Having worked for many years in film, it was clear after working with Emmanuel Houillon that this was the area for her, and in 2009 bought a small parcel of vines and her current cellar. She now has 3.2ha of vineyards of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Trousseau and Pinot Noir around Marnoz and Arbois.
