Jura, often considered one of the more intriguing and idiosyncatic wine regions of France, is as well know for it's ancient local varieties as it is for it's oxidative aging of wines under the flor. France's smallest wine region is equidistant from Burgundy and Switzerand and whilst it benefits from a continental climate, is lush and verdant. Soils are a mix of limestones, clay and marl. Whilst famed possiby more for its whites from Savagnin and Chardonnay - espeically for its Vin Jaune aged under flor for 6 years minimum - its light, fragrant and spicy reds, from Trousseau, Plousard and Pinot Noir, are also made to a highest level.

Philippe Chatillon was estate manager at the much celebrated Arbois winey of Domaine de La Pinte for close to 18 years. It was then, in 2013, that he decided he wanted to create his own, finding and buying a hillside plot of Savagnin in Passenans with which to work. Soon he added plots with of Melon a Queue Rouge, Pinot Noir, Tousseau and Chardonnay and, exchanging his original Savagnin plot for another worked only biodynamically, he is on his way! He works his vineyard by hand, without the use of any chemical fertilizer what so-ever. The soils are aided by biodynamic preparations and in the cellar he uses old oak, spontaneous fermentations and bottles without fining or filtration. Furthermore he works in bio-harmony, using sounds vibrations from harps to aid in the wines balance.

Tasting note: Deep golden yellow with visible texture and legs. The nose is so deep; with rich yellow plum; cooked pineapple and butter. Green notes of pear; green apple and aromatic spcie of bay curry. Some toasted coconut. The pallet is immediately dry with searing juicy acidity; followed by heaps of tangy kiwi; grape juice; physallis; cooked lemon (tingling lemon acidity) yellow plum and apple. Mellows to melon and vanilla; burnt pineapple and a vanilla finish.
