Theo Dancer Jurassique Savagnin 2022


Jura, France

Winemaking and Maturation

Everything under the Theo Dancer labels is done with a focus on low extraction and early picking. The wines are focused and precise. Likewise, minimal intervention techniques such as natural primary and malolactic fermentations, neutral vessels for ageing and very low sulphur additions, are all part of the DNA of these personal wines.

Vinification in used 456L barrels, not temp controlled, no pumping over.

The Theo Dancer and Roc Breïa wines are vinified in the family cellars in Chassagne.

Tasting Notes

Dancer now sources his Savagnin from a conscientious farmer in Rotalier, the same Jura town as Ganevat and Julien Labet. The vines sit on chalk clay over Bajocian limestone subsoil. Emphasising purity and terroir rather than flor-aging notes, the winemaking involves direct pressing into large oak barrels, with no racking until the completion of fermentation, followed by a settling period in stainless-steel tanks before bottling. It’s a mouth-wateringly racy, low pH-driven wine, yet with good texture and a lingering lime and verbena scented close. Magic. Drive, length and finesse: a talented Burgundy grower’s take on the Jura.
