Vin Jaune Arbois Savagnin 2012

This wine is absolutely amazing. It pours into the glass as a deep yellow/gold that sort of looks like Chardonnay that has gone around the bend. It has a vermouth-y nose with a whole bunch of maple, vanilla, and celery (!?!?!). When you taste it, it has absolutely not a trace of sweetness. It’s pretty compact at first, but it opens up into something g completely unexpected and delightfully flavorful with a richness that don’t expect ( and really never find) in a white wine. It’s not like anything I’ve ever had, and I mean that in the best way possible. I hope that I can find it in the States at some point as wines from the Jura aren’t very common. Give it a whirl. It’s not for everyone, but quite different and delicious. — 8 days ago

Paired with a Saffron Butternut Squash Risotto and it was the perfect choice. Briny with a hint of fruit. — 15 days ago

Les Molates Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2016

What I love about non-ox Savagnin is this perfect balance of mitigated, broad acidity with non-fruit and savory spectrums and in this case, an almost CheninB woolly minerality. Drink with food or straight out of the bottle, daily. — 17 hours ago

Arbois Savagnin

Dried wildflowers, gentle tropical fruits, Meyer lemon curd, and a slightly dusty texture. This is a wonderful biodynamic estate producing delicious wines. Cheers! — 24 days ago

Tart & sweet at the same time! A very nice white, perhaps close to a Chablis. Typical Chablis fruits, medium body, longer finish than many wines. Tasted at Parcelle Wine School @ Charlie Bird. — 20 days ago
