    April 2, 2021 - Bright yellow color. Almost electric. Oxidized nose but with Chardo typicity underlying. Lemons & flor for days. Not terrifically complex but my oh my delicious. I drank the last glass. White wine of the night last night. Perfect with our cheese course as aperitif.

    November 12, 2020 - This must be an off bottle. I'm all in on oxidative jura whites but this is just difficult. Contemplative but not pleasurable.

    July 17, 2018 - Gold/ clear. Medium(+) aromas of oxidative nuts/ butterscotch. Medium palate of nuts spice - rather linear and thin. I agree with previous reviews. I am in love with Jura wine and this producer but I don't get much here. Seems dominated by the typical oxidative qualities of Jura but the complex aspects are lacking as is the mouthfeel. Is Chardonnay just not cut out for this type of winemaking or is it the bottle/vintage?

    December 4, 2016 - Color deep golden color with aromas of aldehydes, faint lemon, nutty, crushed celery. on the palate briny, with charred lemon, toasted nuts, and spicy finish.
