Days like today come around every so often. They typically happen after we do inventory, when we realize exactly how much exciting Jura we have in our cellar. The offer is rarely a long newsletter. It's a short message about how we all love the wines of this appellation and how we wish our allocations were larger, as more bottles for us means more bottles for you.
Weather conditions in the Jura (as we've highlighted in past emails) are becoming extremely inconsistent. Many winemakers are unsure about the future of their estates. Iconic domaines are buying grapes from other growers, in the Jura and beyond, to supplement their own dwindling crop. The hierarchy of varietals is in flux, with Pinot Noir plantings on the rise and Trousseau and Poulsard especially suffering from the erratic nature of climate change.
What I'm saying is: the Jura, in terms of wine, won't exist the way we once knew it. So, savor these bottles. There isn't much to go around, but what is available is the highest quality. Delicious, delicious Jura. David Hatzopoulos
En Chemenot is north facing right behind La Pinte...
Beaumont is south facing and in the appellation of Château Chalon...
The Croix & Courbet 2019 Côtes du Jura is a very clear lemon in color, with flashes of silver. The nose is clean and herbal, with a soft floral undertone. Yellow apple and candied lemon with just a touch of the trademark walnut skin and dry grass that Savagnin is known for. As the wine opens, the nose becomes much deeper, with slim, never-ending aromatic density: black pepper, raw and roasted almonds. On the palate the wine is salty, with great tension. A touch of nutty richness, mixed with citrus, chamomile, lemon grass. The finish is long, riding very high acidity and a mild swish. David Hatzopoulos
