I dare you to drink only one glass of this wine. Pure mouthwatering deliciousness in the way that only Jolie Laide can pull off. Trousseau Noir, Poulsard, Gamay, and Valdigué blended into a crunchy, wet rocks, alpine berries, and tundra herb aromatic melee. I thwack thee with a berry and a bouquet of herbs and now I need another glass, and then another bottle. If you’ll forgive the use of a technical term, this is some killer shit.

I occasionally have a wine with my wife that is so superior that I regret a lot of the scores I've given over l other bottles. This is such a wine. Absolutely the best domestic Jura style wine I've ever had. My only real complaint is I was capped out on my allocation.

Light bright packed with cherry and even citrus, but bracing sap and acid make it all come together. There are lingering notes of undergrowth and cassis. Quite a fun departure.
