Lucien Aviet Reserve du Caveau
This product is currently sold out.
Producer: Lucien Aviet
Grapes: 100% Savagnin
Method: Aged 6 years under flor (sous voile) in old 225 litre barrels. Originally intended to make a Vin Jaune, the winemaker decided it didn't quite have the power necessary to brand it thus. So made a still wine with a lot of the character of a Vin Jaune. Bearing this in mind it is great value given the price tag of a Vin Jaune. Expect walnuts, saline notes, searing acid, electric minerality with lime and citrus fruit. This is a complex and versatile food wine that simply demands to be tasted.
