Didier Grappe earned a degree at Lycée Viticole de Beaune in Burgundy, and immediately started working his first vines. He has his own estate in the Jura, bottling under his own name, and in 2007 he converted to organic, certified by Ecocert. He has an intense passion to make truly natural wines, meaning he only ferments with indigenous yeast, he never corrects for flavor with chaptalization or acidification, he uses very little to no sulfites, and never adds anything else into his wine. From the importer: “He says that good wine starts in the vines… [his] vines are a tribute to nature… home to a variety of bird’s nests, spiders, and rabbits just to name a few inhabitants”. The “Longefin” name comes from young vines that he planted on a type of clay-limestone soil called Marne du Lias. This ouillé (a style where the aging vessel topped up, protecting the wine from air) is 100% savagnin from these soils. It has medium acidity and is round in body, with notes of stone fruit, orange citrus, lots of flowers, and a slightly saline finish. Certified organic, low-intervention, vegan.
