Vins du Jura
Now the habits are on with a Jura wine tasting every year in New York city ! This year it was in June, a group with winemakers came to show their wines and let them taste.
We were there too, with Pierre Rolet ! We saw lots of people, passioned with wines from Jura, and it seems that the Vin Jaune has no secrets for any New Yorkers now !
We have presented a wide range of wines all made in the estate from the vineyard, starting with the Crémant, actually the range is full, since the sparkling Rosé has a new shape, showing its beautiful colour. We had three Chardonnay coming from Arbois, Côtes du Jura and Etoile, a very nice tasting actually, bringing the importance of the Terroir, showing that depending on the soil where the Chardonnay grows the wine will be different even if the winemaking is close ! Usually Chardonnay in Arbois, will be more fruity instead of in l’Etoile, the minerality will be dominant. We of course brought some rosé and reds : Trousseau, full of fruits in mouth and the Poulsard becoming famous in NYC. To finish, both emblematic Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille !
It was a really nice tasting in a very nice place … see you next year, same place ! …
