About the Wine

Rounded, deep Savagnin, full of quince, spice and ripe orchard fruit all sitting alongside a fresh streak of saline acidity. The Savagnin here is direct pressed, then put into old oak foudre until judged ready for bottling. The resulting wine shows real roundness, length and complexity. There’s a purity here which we often associate with the wines of Cavarodes, a purity that no doubt reflects the health of Etiennes vines.

The wines of Cavarodes seem to be harder to get a hold of each year, so you'll be unsurprised to hear that we have seriously limited quantities. 

About Domaine des Cavarodes

Etienne Thiebaud set up his domaine in 2007 after working for several years with Pascal and Evelyne Clairet of Domaine de la Tournelle. He settled just north of Arbois in Cramans, by the Loue River, which marks the boundary between the Jura and the Doubs départments. When Etienne began Domaine des Cavarodes in 2007, he was fortunate to acquire a few very old parcels of vines between 60 and 120 years of age. These vines are just on the north side of the Loue, and therefore just outside the appellation of Arbois. The parcels are planted with several extremely old and rare Jura varieties that are great curiosities to nurseries in the Jura and beyond. Etienne’s vineyard work has been organic since the beginning, including his plots within the Arbois appellation in Les Messagelins, which he converted to organic farming upon arrival.
