Aromatics: On the nose this is Jura meets Burgundy. Here we are looking at a beautiful mix of oxidative Jura notes: spice, fresh white fruits and subtle oak. Palate: Aromatics continue through to the palate, with the introduction of red apple. This wine is concentrated and powerful, building length as it goes with high purity and elegance. This is a very fine expression of Jura Chardonnay.
How was it made?
Vines planted in 1930 by Victor Gros founder of Montbourgeau, high density plantings with 10 000 vines per hectares on marl terroir - very low yield. Aged in foudre and then in barrique, not topped up.
