Really a lovely thing. So multifaceted. Gently oxidative nose. Saline. Appealing funk. Palate is honeyed, notes of jasmine, peach, lychee, more ox, nuts, long finish. Enjoyed with pasta/homemade salsa di noci; pairing was on point. #puffeney — 2 months ago
My very first Vin Jaune, made by the master of Arbois, Jacques Puffeney. Made from a grape many confuse for something else - Savaginin. However upon the first whiff from the glass you know this is no ordinary white wine! Smells of salty and stinky cheese ooze from the glass like an epoisses cheese, then come the minerals compounding the complexity. Bright and salty aromas follow the funk down to the palate and are immediately washed clean by the high acidity. I could see this crushing soft sell crabs and other fried and/or salty goodness.
