2007 Philippe Bornard Savagnin Côtes du Jura Les Chassagnes Ouillé

This one shows its age as it pours deep amber color. Aroma is of peaches and orange. On the palate, peach, sweet apple, butterscotch and blood orange, along with notes of almonds. The finish is massively acidic, tooth peeling even, with a subtle salty tang. If you like Gueuze or Fino Sherry, you’ll love this stuff. It’s generally in the same flavor ballpark. I imagine that if Cantillon made an orange lambic, it would taste pretty much like this.
It’s not weird or challenging. If you’ve already acquired the taste for wine, there’s nothing strange about this. There’s no further taste to acquire. The acidity and strong fruit keeps it from going into weird oxidized land.
As far as food pairing, this was absolutely brilliant with flounder meuniere with asparagus. I also bought a chunk of Comte, thinking that it would be a natural pairing, but it was a bit more challenging… take a sip of wine and a bite of Comte and it tastes great, but the next sip of wine tastes like water until you clean your palate with some bread.

Fruit-forward with ripe lemons and tropical notes. High acidity that makes it fresh. Really nice but somehow lacking in Jura character.

BBQ lunch at Daves (Banksia, Sydney): On the nose butter, herbs (touches of lemon thyme), slight citrus of predominantly lemon, spicy notes as well as a certain chalky minerality. In the mouth the wine has citrus over herbs, butter and spice and is quite broad on the palate. It's refreshing and, though only medium length, very pleasant.

Really enjoy this wine. Unfortunately drank at room temperature but even at that temp can tell how nice this is. Oxidized, sherry like, similar to a Batic or Lopez de Heredia. Do get some vanillin and oak, but probably b/c of the temp. Nice nose, great deep yellow/amber color. This makes me want to explore more Jura wines. Delicious.

Heavy fruit, tropical ones. Walnuts, sweet almonds, vanilla and a sense of oxidation. More fussy and delicate on the palate with a tone of bitterness. Orange, lemon and lime. Long aftertaste with a bitter finish, lacks a bit of acidity imo. Obvious Jura-feeling here.

On the positive side this shows a lot of the elements you want from a poulsard. On the negative side it is a bit to thin/watery and the is a strange drying, almost woody, finish.

Esa otra concepción de la chardonnay que me encanta. Puro Jura.

Cambiante en copa, divertido.

Fruta madura, ese toque oxidativo, perfilado y vertical. Mineral.

Se bebe increiblemente bien con una boca rectilinea solo al alcance de unos pocos.

Complejo y especiado. Hierbas.

No me canso.

Nice expressive nose with loads of citrus and minerality. Topped up (ouille) but with those typical Jura charachteristics that reminds one of oxidative wines. Really nice! A great companion to beef brisket and creamed potatoes with mustard and horse raddish.

Un nez floral avec des notes de fruit frais (on croirait un Bojo nature), avec un peu de volatile. Belle fraicheur en bouche avec une acidité élevée mais sans qu’elle soit trop tranchante. Plutôt simple au départ, l’aromatique a développé une certaine complexité, étonnante avec notamment des notes d’agrumes (il n’a pas que la couleur de l’orangeade!), un petit coté bonbon en finale, un léger perlant, bref les comparaisons ironiques avec l’orangeade ne sont pas si à coté de la track, mais ça me plait! Un vin rafraichissant, agréable et surtout très original. 88-89 pts

Very light, strong aromatics on the nose with still some tannings.
It kinds of close the gap between Arnot Roberts/ Sandlands Trousseau and the Jura ones.
Not much depth though.

No formal notes taken. Pink/orange in color, slightly cloudy appearance. Strong aromatics of strawberry/cherry. Prickly in the mouth, with strong presence of brett. I found this wine unique but quite enjoyable, primarily due to its aromatics

Notes of banana on the nose, as well as some herbal notes. Soft mouthfeel. Some acid, and a drier finish. Light golden yellow color in the glass. We enjoyed this bottle immensely and would thoroughly recommend it.

Beau vin à la robe rubis. Un nez incomparable: un fruité immersif, légèrement épicé. En bouche, une belle fraîcheur et une juste dose d'acidité mettent bien en valeur les fruits rouges, croquants, bien à l'avant-plan. Un vin gourmand, tout simplement délicieux.

This is an apple cider-y, oxidative wine with a hint of effervescence. Easy-drinking and uncomplex, but a good match to food.
The wine looks orange colored. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like apple. The body is medium. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

Un vin étonnant, à la personnalité étincelante, hors norme. Une robe cerise, qui rappelle certains Beaujolais. Le fruit est tout simplement explosif, d'une richesse étonnante, tout est axé pour mettre en valeur ce caractère fruité sans artifice. Ma première expérience avec ce cépage, un vin que j'attendais plus acide et longiligne. Délicieux.

Lunch at Wine-Ark Daves (Banksia, Sydney): aromas of earth, red berry - strawberry, slight leather, biscuit and sour red cherry. In the mouth the wine is juicy, spicy with flavours of red cherry and berry, almost a kirsch note. Slight bitterness with the chalky tannic grip and a little alcohol warmth lends a minty quality (for some reason) nice.

Very fine light-bodied Jura red. We didn't open until after the meal, but it would have gone even more splendidly with food, I think.

This wine is typical of what you'd expect from a natural Jura producer... a bit funky, a bit fruity, and above all, a bit fun and quirky. Good acid and structural tannin to make it a great food wine.

CWS Wine Dinner (Sea Goose): Such a crazy wine. Wild aromatics with herbs and wax and all this stuff that I don't normally think of with wine so don't know how to describe. The palate is round and also wild. Really cool wine that is a delight to try. Whether you think it's worth $40+ is another thing, but definitely worth trying just for the uniqueness.
