Light acidic wine, lovely with seafood — 2 years ago


Les Sarres Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2012

Oxydative chardonnay with a wide palette of aromas, rich yet balanced by a good lenght shared between a dosed acidity and ripe fruit after taste. A rigorous winemaker negociant wine. — 4 years ago

"La Rouge" Poulsard Arbois 2018

Now we’re talkin— must have had at least 3 or 4 bottles prior to this, & they were all mute. Completely expressive now. Light sunshine vermillion color in glass. Wild red raspberries, fine tannins, medium, soft acidity. Floral & those fruits on nose. From a producer I hold complete faith in, happy the reward came ( his Chardonnay is my catnip). I did not decant. The question remains: were they bad bottles or just in a ‘dumb’ phase? — 5 months ago

Vieilles Vignes Chardonnay 2010

Very unusual for a Chardonnay - because it's coming from Jura's colder climate and soils. Worth decanting. Better than last time I had it (3 years ago). — 4 years ago


Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay 2016

Beautifully balanced fruit, acidity and (subtle) oak. Melon, peach pineapple and citrus flavours, good length and a soft finish. A style that a few new world producers could learn from. Will buy this again. — 10 months ago

En Faux Vieilles Vignes Saint-Veran 2016

- 100% Chardonnay aged on Lee’s, that gives it a creamy taste, great texture and buttery, toasty notes, citrus and great minerality
Vieilles Vignes means old vines -

Vin Jaune Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2014

This needs air! But after 20 minutes in the glass, this spicy savagnin kicks it up a notch and becomes both rich (on the nose) and balanced, with great acidity. However, despite the typicity the grape, I do find that it lacks a clear sense of terroir - perhaps it could be even more idiosyncratic? — 4 years ago
