Region: Arbois, Jura, France
Producer: Domaine Jean Macle
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Type: White Wine
The domain's "little gem", a mere 3000 bottles being produced, this Chardonnay aged sous voile is reminiscent, to a certain extent, of vin jaune. In fact, thanks to its typically Jura élevage (three months sous voile as compared to six years and three months for vin jaune), the wine is blessed with aromas such as walnut and spices (curry, nutmeg, saffron). Delicious if enjoyed straight away, it is even better when aged for several years.
Food Pairing: Mature Cheese or a Sauce-Based Fish or Poultry dish.
