Les Chais du Vieux Bourg, Côtes du Jura ‘BB1’ 2011

Imported by Langdon Shiverick, Los Angeles CA.

50-50 blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin.

Yellow-gold.  Open and inviting with fusil edge: grape hyacinth, native yeasts and pigeon stock.  Plenty of body with no clearly identifiable fruit-ester.  Considerable acidity (and I thought all the ’11s lack zip) with a redolent Jura twang at end, replete with herb oils and pale straw.  Now.
