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.

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! — 10 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2020

Very powerful for Gamay. Shows what it can do. Wild be great with a bloody steak. More intriguingly could age for 2/3 years at least I think. Cracking well made wine — 3 hours ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

The Beaujolais 16’s are genereally very open for business. This wine has a clean nose with strawberry and cherry. Nice acidity, no red candy notes that I have come to really dislike with too young wines. Will be good for a handfull of years ahead. — a month ago

Fleurie Gamay 2015

Enticing fruit and nutmeg on the nose. So much going on. The palate is essence of strawberry with some blueberry/current, and earthy savoury notes. Then the tannin arrives on the mid palate to wrap the fruit in a super fine shawl. Finely grippy and super long. Really amazing. — 4 days ago
