89 points
Dark gold/ amber in color
Medium aromas of fresh red apple/ applesauce
Nice palate of apples with oxidative qualities as expected
Palate rather simple and appears out of synch - medium/ medium plus acidity and medium length which does appear to drop off suddenly
Nicely made typical Jura - I have come to the conclusion again that, although enjoyable, I don't particularly have the attraction for Chardonnay made in this method and IMO the Savignin grape typically shows much more character. I keep buying these nonetheless but I think with rare exception I prefer the Savignin.
