We have managed to get our hands on an allocation of these unicorn-worthy wines from Jura-based producers, O2Y. Gringet is an indigenous grape variety from the Savoie region, specifically Ayzes, a village located at an altitude of 450 metres with vineyards growing on rocky limestone slopes. The Gringet variety has quite a few common points with / is quite similar to the Savagnin grape that is most associated with Jura.
Due to the sudden passing of Dominique Belluard, Valerie took the decision to sell their entire harvest to family and friends. Luckily for us, Olivier managed to secure his own small allocation of Gringet grapes for O2Y. The fruit comes from some of the most iconic vineyards in Ayze, planed on a mix of calcareous and marl soils. It is pressed directly into cuve and aged on fine lees in barrel after fermentation and malolactic have completed.
This cuvée made and aged in wooden casks and has beautiful floral notes with a subtle spicy side. With much delicacy, tension, and mineral notes the taste of this wine is very characteristic of its terroir.
