The Jura is a world unto itself. It's a melting pot of curious whites and reds, many you've probably never heard about. A narrow valley wedged between Burgundy and Switzerland, this is countryside filled with limestone cliffs and hillocks upon which the best vines are planted. These wines are tangy, complex, pure and delicious.
Red or White?
Both. The whites provide a gamut of styles from the fresh and crisp Savagnin and chardonnays topped up (ouillé), to the oxidative, rich and nutty styles left purposely under-filled to encourage flor development. Minerality is a recurrent theme, threading the whites together. The reds can be a little paler in colour but don't be fooled as they carry a lot of flavour.
Ploussard (or Poulsard), Trousseau, Pinot Noir
Most of the whites show saline and hazelnut tones, and if they are developed under flor there are richer yeasty and oyster shell flavours. As for the mountain reds, there is a cooler tannin profile and a lovely show of earthy freshness.

Boisseau Pinot Noir Terre de Chazeux 20172012 was the inaugural vintage for Delphine and Sébastien Boisseau's 7.5-hectare Domaine La Vigne Mouton, an estate committed to organic farming that sold its fruit to the local cooperative for the previous 15 years. Winemaking here is minimalist, eschewing sulfur dioxide, fining or filtration, but the quality of what I tasted was very promising. It's exciting to see some ambition in Mâcon-Bray, the northernmost AOC of the Mâconnais. WILLIAM KELLEY, The Wine Advocate2017Pinot noirFrance427Special Price $51.20 Regular Price $64.00
Domaine de Pelican Trois Cepages 2018A blend of the three Jura reds, pinot, ploussard and trousseau. There's a seriousness and depth to this wine that is offset with fragrant fruit and earthy tannins. A beautiful wine.
'The 2018 Arbois Trois Cepages a is brilliant introduction to Guillaume D'Angerville's Jura reds. Bright and punchy, the Trois Cepages offers superb fruit intensity in the mid-weight, lifted style that is typical of these wines. The warm growing season gives this blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard an extra kick of radiance that works so well.' ANTONIO GALLONI
