Savagnin is the indigenous grape variety of the Jura. Derived from the ancient Traminer, it gives a floral, aromatic wine with fine freshness and acidity. Less broad on the palate than chardonnay but with an intriguing, nutty character and a lovely, saline quality.

Florent picks his Burgundy and Jura vineyards consecutively. His Burgundy wines are rich yet fresh, the Jura wines are crisper and leaner with less alcohol and higher acidity and are rapidly gaining a fine reputation for their freshness and minerality.

This Savagnin shows superb freshness yet with great richness and length followed with lovely orchard fruit aromas. A real treat.

This is mountainous terrain and it pairs best with hearty mountain food - tartiflette, käsespätzle or raclette.

More Information



Don't be fooled by its size, good things come in small packages. Although Jura vineyards stretch over just 50 miles, they are no less rich or varied.

Nestled against the Jura Mountains are seven Appellations. Arbois (the oldest appellation in France), Côtes du Jura, L'Etoile, Château-Chalon, Macvin du Jura, Crémant du Jura and Marc du Jura. The grape varieties are: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir.



Small-berried and thick-skinned, Savagnin has been cultivated in France for at least 900 years. It is also known as Traminer, as well as ‘Heida’ in Switzerland, although the grape’s birthplace is unclear.

It is best known as the signature grape of Jura. It ripens late, though it can produces dry white wines with good acidity. In Jura, it typically has a citrus and floral character, though more tropical examples can be found.


Florent Rouve

This brilliant young wine-maker has made a name for himself in both his home region of the Jura and in the Mâconnais where he has expanded his holdings considerably by buying the famous Jean Rijckaert estate from the eponymous Belgian restaurateur.

Rouve’s oenological approach emphasizes freshness, integrity and balance and offers a superb alliance of tradition and a modern, minimalist style that respects the unique terroirs in which he works.
