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
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. — 15 days ago
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
On the heavier side for a Jura red, nice velvety texture and smooth tannins — a month ago
Fresh. Lively. Nutty slight oxidative notes. Brushland. — 14 days ago
