Didier Grappe is a cult producer who makes high energy, zero so2 wines from a very small vineyard surface in Saint Lothian.
This 2010 Vin Jaune is extraordinary, probably the most natural wine you can find. Made of the Savagnin grape, the wine is left intentionally for 6 years and 3 months in barrels under a natural yeast protective layer called "flor". The result is just spectacular, a complex nose of nuts, dried fruits and salty notes. The veil of "flor" yeast lends to the palate the oxidative character and some distinctive nutty aromas of green walnut and morels mushrooms notes. This 2010 vintage still expresses a lot of energy and freshness.
