Region: Jura, FRA
The first thing you notice is the name, Overnoy. This one is not to be confused with the legendary estate in Pupillin although Guillame's Grandfather was a brother to Pierre Overnoy and their Poulsard is propagated from cuttings from Arbois-Pupillin.
This estate is located in Orbagna, in the south of the Jura in the region of Sud Revermont. They are not too far away from Rotalier, home to the famous estates of Labet and Ganevat. They specialize in Trousseau which does particularly well in their area.
This is an estate to watch, the talent is there, as is passion and support.
All Chardonnay, aged on lees for 30 months! Guillaume is pretty good with sparkling wine, in fact, it is the first thing I tasted with him at Julien Labet's house in 2017 - this has a core of taught yellow tinged fruit, very crisp and saline with nutty lees giving complexity; it has a sunny disposition and is expansive and bright with the Jurassic limestone giving tightness and freshness on the finish. - Notes from the importer
