This domain really does produce great wines in the pure sense of the word and the Jura region some of the most individual and purest wines we can imagine but so under-valued. Single vineyard Chardonnay vines from old vines (oldest planted in 1938), almost no sulphitage...A wine with plenty of power, energy and minerality. A nutty finish even if not "eleve sous voile". Would perhaps lack of depth /dimension...vintage?

Funky in a good way chardonnay. More interesting than delicious but pretty good effort. Perfect wine to convince someone that white wine isn't boring
