Château Chalon, Jura

Jean François Ganevat

La Graviere Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2018

Couldn't ask for a better wine to end my involuntary 2-months streak of no wines. Chardy muscate from old vines planted on gray marl, bought and spun into gold by the Ganevat's after aging on lees for 30 months. Straight out of the gates, it was like sipping on lemon drops and slurping on oysters by the sea. As nice as that was, it was the days after that the wine truly shone. Candied tangerine, ripe stone fruits, lemon zest, baked goods, brioche, toasted almonds, white florals, and a touch of smoke. Long finish driven by fine acidity and chalky minerality. Drank like a great champagne without bubbles. It's a one on the binary scale! — 4 days ago

Cuvée Spéciale L'Etoile Chardonnay Blend 2014

Very nutty and serious. Classic sur voile aroma. A blast of tart yellow fruit juice on the attack, all on the mineral side. Then this seems to drop off on midpalate only compared to the start and finish, which are tuned to volume 11. The finish just demolishes, goes on forever with walnut, preserved lemon, slate. But then every sip is a different experience. Really a wine of intrigue.

Wow days in the fridge and this has become insane. So much more dense, savory and chewy. Really curry notes are building.

@Peter Sultan @Andrew Schirmer This cuvee is the most reliably awesome Jura white for me. Affordable, so well made, serious Jura character. It’s like a baby vin jaune. And beats some more expensive vin jaune’s I’ve tried for that matter.

Brut Cremant Du Jura Chardonnay

A lovely sparkling wine after a nice drive through the Rockies. Notes of yellow apple, ginger and quince, a little thin on the finish but very refreshing. — 11 days ago

I really enjoyed the lemon zesty quality of this wine. High acid like a chablis, almost a vinho verde up front.

Les Chonchons Cotes du Jura Pinot Noir 2019

Sublime Pinot Noir, reminiscent of Coteaux Champinois but lite, ethereal, and with all the herbal freshness of the Jura. So much fun. — 15 days ago

Domaine Pêcheur

Cuvée des Trois Cépages Côtes du Jura Savagnin

Brilliant savagnin - huge floral nose, that distinctive Jura salty play-doh aroma. Massive palate: oxidative, crème brûlée, sappy core, high acid, refreshing AF, long finish. 😍 — 20 hours ago

La Bardette Les Parcelles Rare Jura Sud Revermont Chardonnay

2014. This wine is awesome. Oxidative, but not over the top, still really pretty fruit and spice. Baked apple, clove, candied lemon zest, hint of bubble gum, marzipan, hazelnut, little sour note and amazing acid. Opened for “tapas” night. Acid bringing everything together. — 2 days ago
