FUMEY CHATELAIN - ARBOIS CHARDONNAY 2019
Organically farmed. A mouth-watering mix of lemon zest, finger lime and white nectarine flavours stroke the palate gently before subsiding to the most refreshing briny finish. The palate is generous and drinks effortlessly, yet it is restrained and impeccably put together.
ORIGIN Arbois, Jura, France
MAKER Fumey Chatelain
The fruit grows on marl and limestone soils. It is hand harvested and macerated for 15 days. 70% is free run juice and 30% is extracted from pressings. The result is light and juicy with an interesting smoky minerality, texture and tight structure.
Red Jura wines offer lightness and drinkability. The diverse patchwork of terroirs and topography allows Marin to produce flavoursome reds like the Arbois Pinot Noir, especially from sites where the soils can be richer, and the prime site of Les Grands Champs in Montigny-les-Arsures. A glass or two go a long way with chicken liver parfait and pickled vegetables.
