I have poured this wine for several dinner parties now and it is always a hit! The soils of the Jura are mostly marl and limestone sharing a lot in common with Champagne. This cuvee of Chardonnay and Pinot really explodes on the nose with the essence of spiced pear fruit, candied ginger and biscuity dough. Tight mousse and crisp acidity keep this lively and refreshing on the palate. The "Sauvage" makes an exquisite aperitif but I find it just as enjoyable with food. One of my favorite cocktail party starters is a spiced miso dip with crudites. This goes perfectly!
