Press Reviews

A topped up blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin. Subtle bouquet of stone fruit and pear on the nose. Round fruit on the attack then exhilarating acidity and freshness on the finish.
James Lawther MW, Decanter Magazine, August 2018

From a region favoured by sommeliers looking for wines that are versatile with food, this white is a mouthwatering combination of toasty hazelnut richness and pristine lemon-zest and candied citrus intensity. There’s a strong streak of fine white Burgundy about it, but with more spring in its step. Chardonnay needs no explanation, but the other half of the blend may do. Savagnin is very much a variety of the Jura, where it’s used especially for Vin Jaune, the Jura wine matured under flor like fino sherry, but Cuvée Castor – all purity, precision and richness – is the antithesis of the oxidative Vin Jaune style. Champ Divin’s vineyards are certified biodynamic – hence the name Castor, after a star (strictly speaking six stars, before anyone corrects me) – and the wines have very little sulphur added to them. Try it with fish, chicken, spices, roast vegetables, cream sauces or cheese, or drink it on its own.

The Jura, an unsung wine region east of Burgundy, is gaining ground, but quality is still mixed. This is worth stocking up on, produced by Fabrice and Valérie Closset, with a glorious peachy character and subtle acidity.

Will Lyons, The Sunday Times, 8th April 2018

Perfectly balanced between rich & toasty and fresh & energetic, this biodynamic Chardonnay Savagnin is an absolute winner from @TannersWines. Buy.
