Château D'Arlay

Côtes du Jura Blanc Chardonnay Savagnin 2009

Vibrant, fresh & energetic. Lemon notes on the palate with some sherry/nutty aromatics adding complexity. Descriptors aside, this is just a beautiful bottle of wine. 2009 vintage bottled in 2014. — 4 days ago

@Anthony Lombardi did you source locally? I used to buy their macvin from P&W but haven’t seen them around for a while.

@Andrew Schirmer - I honestly can’t remember where I got this.

Domaine Rolet

Tradition Arbois Chardonnay Blend 2009

Nose of nuts, sour apple, hay, butter, a bit of white pepper. This is clearly oxidized. The palate is wonderful, very dry with lots of acids, a very wide and dry presence, some grip, a bit of a buttery touch on the sides, almost a tannic thing in mid palate like a kind of kick, some green apple, and a very long finish with apple and a bit of pepper. This is so good! I remembered this wine being too dry and a bit unbalanced, this is now very precise. A food wine. — 15 days ago

En Jensillard Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2013

Beautiful oxidative savagnin. 2013 more my style than the turnt-up 2015 tbh, more quaffable. Maybe mellowed with age! — 5 days ago

Domaine Pêcheur

Cremant Du Jura

Beautifully light limestone ridden zippy Chardonnay of apple core and the tiniest whiff of brioche. Salty, briny, great for pre-dinner snacking. — 14 days ago

Le Clousot Arbois Trousseau 2017

Raspberries, bell peppers, spice and quite a bit of brett, at least in this bottle. Chewy tannins, fine acid and concentration. Nice.

Even better on day 2. Wish I had another bottle for a few years from now.

Or as those city-dwellin’ Fraunch like to call it...Poulsard. Wash your hands and wrap them around some of this 12.5% gem of phenolic clarity. Bound to socially distance your cult Cali Cab friends. 😆 — 13 days ago

Domaine de Saint Pierre

Château Renard Arbois Chardonnay Savagnin 2016

Brought home from Paris back in December. Quite stinky and reductive upon opening - let this bottle breath for a while. I decanted and threw it in the fridge for an hour or so and it came out singing. Chenin-like in its ripping acidity and wooly apple/pear thing, the palate is more elegant than the nose. It was a great paring for a heavily seasoned lean wild salmon fillet. — 15 days ago
