Domaine Courbet Château Chalon 2013
Domaine Courbet Château Chalon is from Damien Courbet, a new star of the Jura. The ultimate Savagnin, this is aged sous voile in barrel for at least 6 years; restrained yet powerful and mineral.
Domaine Courbet was founded in 1896 and consists of just 7.5 hectares, half of which are in the prestigious Château Chalon appellation, source of the Jura's finest wines. Damien Courbet is surely a big star of the future – since taking over from his father Jean-Marie he has started working biodynamically, making small quantities of immaculate wines in a fine elegant style, very focused on terroir, with a technical yet light touch approach to his winemaking that brings out the maximum expression of the region and its varieties. The wines avoid rusticity while being true to their origins. Chateau Chalon is one of the great historic wines of France, and is a Vin Jaune exclusively from vineyards around the village of the same name. This is made biodynamically and has been aged “sous voile” without sulphur in barrel. These are the longest lived wines of the Jura, and this is a restrained, elegant expression full of controlled power; precise white fruits with hints of dried apricot, curry leaf, white flowers and almond. Long, mineral and fine – will age forever!
