When the Macle estate goes green...
The wines tasted at the estate (July 2019)
Côtes-du-Jura 2014 (Chardonnay under veil)
This is the traditional blend of blends, Chardonnay and Savagnin in proportion of 85% / 15%. There are 3 different bottlings of this vintage.
The vintage is rich in material, opulent. The nose is malty, barley and cereals. It offers a beautiful combination of spices, curry and saffron. Long and structured palate, a wine to forget a few years for cellaring. It makes think of 2009 which is a splendid success.
The nose is more discreet. It's a bit of the antithesis of 2009. In the mouth, the wine is round, mineral, very long, and tasty. Probably a fine wine of gastronomy.
Vintage very successful, as will also be 2013, it is very expressive. It is more powerful on the nose, green nuts, spices. On the palate, it has a nice texture of minerality and finishes subtle and airy.
Macvin of the Jura
It is a beverage consisting of 2/3 grape juice still unfermented and 1/3 marc.
If it is not easy to place in a tasting, because of its alcoholic titration and sugar, it is nonetheless of high quality, very tasty and long. This is a bottle to taste as an aperitif or even as a compagnon with a dessert.
