2000 VIEUX SAVAGNIN OUILLÉ FROM DOMAINE OVERNOY-HOUILLON: CEDRIC’S WINE OF THE WEEK – CHRISTMAS EDITION 🎄
What do you do when you have the whole Raisin team around your table? You try to make this moment unique, with a wonderful wine. So, you go to the cellar, and decide upon this bottle of exception: the 2000 Vieux Savagnin Ouillé from Domaine Overnoy-Houillon, exactly what we needed.
Only one problem, the bottle is 50cl… for 12 people, and we have to share!
Where to begin about this domain and this bottle… Pierre Overnoy and Emmanuel Houillon are remarkable winemakers in Pupillin, Jura ! The intensity of aromas in this wine are just crazy. For years and years, they top off regularly, waiting for the perfect moment to bottle.
I remember it well – watching the 12 people around the table taking minutes just to smell the incredible aromas of sweet curry, walnut, fresh almonds, and citrus. We only had a few centiliters in the glass, but without a doubt, it was the most intense wine of the night.
What a moment ! A real emotion.
