Château Chalon, Jura

Jean François Ganevat

Grusse en Billat Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2013

France goes through to the knock out round of the world cup - this calls for a little celebration! The nose is a tiny bit oxydative already with cooked apples, lemon, pear, a buttery note and some white flowers lingering in the back. This is a seriously complex nose. The palate is extremely well made with a massive acid backbone but with some width and weight. There is almost a thickness quality to the mouthfeel at first reminding that of a premier cru white burgundy in the côte de beaune. The difference is in the finish with is very fresh, vertical, made of lemony touches all through the end and which lasts for a good minute. This is great stuff! — a day ago

D.D. Arbois Poulsard Blend 2020

Blend of Troussseau (40%), Poulsard (30%) and Pinot Noir (30%). Beautiful, bright red fruit aromas and some earthy notes. Lively, quite complex, very tasty. Nice minerality. Delicious — 2 months ago

Les Chalasses Marnes Bleues Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2013

En-magnum. Elevated to another level with the cheese board and notably the only white that could really keep up with the Rieslings during the night. The flavours of salted almonds, beeswax, hay, and light smokiness just went so well with the Comté. Mama mia! The wine was complex, very straight, yet dense and had a lovely textural richness. Lots of citrus and minerals, as well as spicy nuances to complete the notes. Even more mineral on day two.

NB: SC firmly believes this and the Les Vignes de Mon Père are Ganevat's best cuvees and perhaps the two greatest sources of Savagnin anywhere.

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Ouillé 2016

Complex and multilayered Savagning in a clean (e.g. no flor) style. Ouillé! Fried sunflower seeds, lemon peel, sesame, honey, used leaves of aged Bái Mǔ Dān. And what an incredible acidity despite its age. Almost perfect balance, long aftertaste, vigorous and flavourful. Great wine, yet hard to appreciate on a blind tasting. Something I would love to buy and taste again in five or ten years.

Tasted as part of Mixed Bag Vol. 1.
