Nearly one year later: similar to the last note; nicely integrated, and drinking beautifully now. Highly enjoyable over three nights.

29 months after the prior: more of the same; lively and lovely stuff meted out in small pours over five nights, and only gaining in complexity at the end.

Savory dark fruit. Elegant, mineral. Medium depth, decent finish. It seems quite integrated at this time. Very enjoyable over three nights.

Deep ruby. Bursting with spice and herbs at first. Too bad that didn't last longer than 10 or so minutes. Then it became darker and rather monolithic. Still, good balance, a touch of funk, and some elegance over three nights.

As before, and lovely again over three or four nights, getting only better over that time. We’ve also reconfirmed that this goes especially well with foods flavored with a touch of lime.

Earthy and savory. Surprisingly elegant, with hints of dark cherry, underbrush and white pepper. Quite enjoyable over three nights.

Bright ruby. Exotically spiced. Zingy. Beautifully balanced. A fine example of cool coastal pinot noir. Very enjoyable over three nights.

Six months after the prior: This, our 6th, continues to show its original oxidative character, along with lovely bracing acidity. But overall this bottle seemed sharper, and less friendly, compared with the previous. Consistent over three nights, and fading on the fourth.

Medium golden. Excellent tension. Highly enjoyable over three nights.

22 months after the prior: essence of slightly bitter stone fruit pit and white flowers. Slightly oily. Lacking acid, and hence verve. Consistent over three nights.
Red

14 months after the prior: Similarly correct (over three nights) — but again not especially interesting.

Five months after the prior, and our last: this has become a lovely earthy and lively savory rosé. Pleasantly funky. Surprisingly enjoyable over two nights, and showing little fade on the second.

23 months after the prior: savory, with essence of aged nuts and curry/ caramel, backed up by lovely acid. This has further integrated (and somewhat smoothed out) very nicely. For us, this is the most enjoyable Jura blend. Excellent in small pours (and especially with curried prawns) over four nights.

31 months later — and what an improved difference. This was energetic and balanced, with a pleasant hint of barnyard/ funk. Highly enjoyable over three nights.

Medium golden. Bright, energetic; less rich than anticipated (and more Chabils-like), but very enjoyable over three nights.

Three+ months after the prior: lovely again, but we agree with the note below that the fruit is fading. Still, quite complex and very enjoyable over three nights.

Lovely nose. Dusty and elegant, lingering finish. Like the note below suggested, it did seem to shut down a bit — or, more than expected — after a short time in the decanter. But then it was gone within 90 minutes, so there was no opportunity to see if it blossomed further. Lovely while it lasted.

Nose of aged black olives and roasted meats. Lovely integrated white pepper. Deep and rather precise. Medium length, generous finish. This is highly enjoyable now and should develop beautifully.

Pale golden. Savory. Fantastic nose of white flowers and exotic citrus, with a hint of camomile. A slight and very pleasant waxy component. Deep and long. This was super.

Bright, elegant, and simultaneously with drive. Jviz’s note below is otherwise apt for us. (At Madcap, San Anselmo.)

Opened and enjoyed four two nights. Then we simply corked it and were away for 20 nights. On reopening it was lovely, and still very lively. Amazing stuff.

Bright, friendly. Not quite as complex as the lovely savory and somewhat honeyed 2014 — but still distinctive, interesting and very enjoyable.

“Honeyed undertow” — that nicely describes the sample we had. Also: quite complex, with welcome savory earthiness. Lovely and lively stuff. But the CT valuation is just a bit off — we paid 12,50 at the very pleasant and friendly little winery.

The nose was fabulous — musky dark complex cherry and a bit of barnyard. Unlike a few prior notes, we found this the opposite of austere; it was quite generous and friendly — yet powerful, with a hint of astringency. One of the most enjoyable NSGs in our memory/ experience, and we think this is drinking beautifully right now. (At Le Petit Verdot.)

Bright, energetic. Rather austere, but it opened somewhat upon decanting. Diam 30 closure — maybe it will come around in 20? (In Zalto Universal, at Le Soufflot, Meursault.)

Golden. Decanted. Deep, rich, with lovely curry and aged nuts flavors. Amazing tension: Simultaneously austere and generous. Lovely lingering finish. Excellent bracing acidity. Superb. Even when our glasses were empty, the remains gave us great pleasure. (At Bistronome, Arbois.)

Deep golden. First pour was a bit cloudy, but the rest was decanted and was crystalline. Notes of curry, nuts, with hint of cheesiness. Bracing acidity, with a lovely lingering finish that accentuated a touch of yellow fruit/caramel. Superb. (At Auberge de la Poutre, Bonlieu.)

Deep golden. Aromas and taste of roasted nuts. Slightly oily. Lovely and lingering finish. Reminiscent of aged Loire Chenin Blanc. Quite versatile with many dishes, but it fought some with lots of citrus acidity. (At Les Morainières.)
