Tasting notes for the Arbois-Pupillin Savagnin 2000 - Pierre Overnoy

  • EYE: Golden robe with amber reflections, bearing witness to the time that has shaped this wine. The intense color announces a tasting experience that blends maturity with persistent freshness, characteristic of great aging wines.
  • NOSE: This wine reveals a complex bouquet where aromas of nuts and honey intertwine with delicate floral notes. Hints of beeswax and roasted almonds emerge gradually, offering an olfactory invitation to explore the aromatic richness of this vintage.
  • MOUTH: The Savagnin 2000 impresses with its velvety texture and remarkable balance. Flavors of candied pear, dried fruits, and spices unfold with elegance, supported by well-integrated acidity that brings liveliness and length. A tasting that unveils the depth and finesse of this vintage.


In short: The 2000 vintage of Pierre Overnoy's Savagnin is a masterful expression of the grape's ability to evolve gracefully over the years. Its complex aromatic palette and balance make it an exceptional wine, ready to be opened now. However, it still offers a potential aging capacity of 3 to 5 additional years, testifying to its robustness and structure. Pair this cuvée with delicate dishes such as truffle risotto, pan-seared scallops, or aged Comté cheese.

The legend of organic wine in Jura


The Domaine Pierre Overnoy can be found in the small village of Pupillin, next to Arbois, in the Jura region. The estate was founded in 1968 but Pierre Overnoy, its former owner, had been helping his winemaker of a father since the 1950’s. Pierre’s philosophy was always very simple: wine needs to remain pure. This is why he was always against using chemicals for his crops, even when all the other winemakers of the region started adopting them. It’s also the reason why he refused to add sulphites to his wine.

Years passed and Pierre Overnoy never wavered. That strength turned him into a celebrity, in the little world of organic winemaking, inspiring a lot of younger viticultors. 2020 was the consecration: the famous French magazine "La Revue du Vin de France" gave Pierre 3 stars in its Best French Wines guide. Celebrating his effort when it came to biodynamic methods, as well as the sheer quality of his natural wines. Pierre thus joined the ranks of other famous organic winemakers, like Jean-François Ganevat or André & Mireille Tissot.

In 2001, it was time for Pierre to retire. With no children of his own, he decided to leave the estate in the capable hands of Emmanuel Houillon (Adeline's brother), whom he always loved like a son and who had been working with him for more than 15 years. Today, Emmanuel and his wife Anne are in charge of the Domaine Pierre Overnoy and its 5,5 hectares of vineyard (mostly Chardonnay and Savagnin grapes). The wines they produce are very close to what Pierre could make, and the price of the bottles are reaching new heights since 2015, breaking all auction sales records.
