Classic Puffeney Savagnin with oxidized, nutty flavors along with marks of melon, lime and honey. Very distinct wine, not for everyone, but I love it. Great match with Beaufort. Happy to have this in my cellar.
Strong, classic Manzanilla Sherry like nose of nuts and cheese along with notes of salty herbal fish. Sharp palate with that Savagnin tinge kicking in on the back end, almost with a pucker. Lots of acid and clean. Powerful in expression, full of fruit yet lean in feel. Good stuff though a bit more sour than many would like. I like this though I would like to see more Savagnin and Chardonnay blends from the Jura versus the single variety wines. The blends I've had work very well and I think the grapes offer the right differences to make superior wines together.
