    January 3, 2015 - Holiday Dinner at Nathan's (Nathan's House - Chicago, IL): I enjoyed drinking this alongside the 2004 Overnoy Savagnin ouille and thought it performed better on this night. Along with the 2005 Overnoy Chardonnay, we had a brilliant representation of what 2005 Jura can put forth. Much like the 2005 chardonnay this was incredibly powerful and rich. The flavors of lemon were almost sappy...but then you remember you're drinking Jura and the acidity snaps you in the lips. Incredible combination of freshness, concentration and cut. Beautiful.

    November 26, 2011 - Bright medium urine color. Light smoky oily nose of underripe apples and pears. No sense of savagnin oxidation, the palate is extremely bright and intense with fresh tart white fruit and a little petrol. The medium finish features stinging acidity and a bit more smoke. On its own this wine is pretty aggressive, but paired with a creamy or fatty cheese it is almost sweet; needs full-bodied food to shine.
