Château-Chalon Savagnin 2015

I was delighted to taste the 2015 Château-Chalon together with proprietor and winemaker Hélene Berthet at this iconic winery. An untamed powerhouse reflecting the warm vintage, it bursts from the glass with enticing aromas of walnuts, almonds, hazlenuts, dried apples, dried peach, crushed flowers, dried lemon peel, hay and a pinch of cumin spice. The palate boasts an off the charts richness and expands vertically, revealing layer after layer of concentrated dried fruits and a beautiful nuttiness, concluding with a bold and powerful finish. This is a world-class Vin Jaune capable of long term bottle aging. — 6 months ago

La Poirière Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2018

All the funky, stony and herbal action you’d expect from a Jura Chardo. Candied lemon, appleskin, rockdust, flint, herbaceous/saline and woolly notes, ginger and jasmin. Lovely touches of bitter almond skin in the finish, which is long and dry but refreshing. Full of tension and nervosity. Very very tasty and interesting and - @ 20€ - a fantastic alternative for the high reputation wines of Ganevat, Labet and Tissot (just to mention a few), although there’s probably a tiny step back in complexity. — 2 years ago

Trio Côtes du Jura Trousseau Blend 2019

Toast, strawberry, cherry and hay on the nose. It's rather subtle and delicate. The palate is very well designed, with a strong acid backbone, a nice silky texture with strawberry, a velvety tannin wall before a fruity, silky finish. It's very smooth and juicy, and dangerously easy going. It was served all along dinner but it was showing best when paired with cheese (Saint nectaire fermier was a hit pairing) — 3 years ago

Château de Rayne Vigneau

Sauternes de Rayne-Vigneau Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

Lucky enough to have been invited to pillage the cellar of an old friend and came out of it with a 1975 and 1986 ch Rayne-Vingneau Sauternes. Both wonderful but the 86 was stunning, everything a late harvest wine can and should be. Fresh herbal aromas of tarragon, camphor, menthol and almond oil. Honeyed dried apricots in mid palate with do much more . Clean mineral and mediciinal finish. Very lush and lithe. Truly a standard bearer. — 4 years ago
