Vignerons Les Matheny Chardonnay Arbois Jura France 2014 Chardonnay

Updated: Nov 18, 2019

Jura Magic...

Natives of the Jura, Elise & Emeric Foléat founded Vignerons Les Matheny in 2007 after Emeric had spent 8 yrs. working under the tutelage of renowned winemaker Jacques Puffeney - the ‘Pope of Arbois’. This Chardonnay is produced from vines averaging 45 yrs., it’s aged in much used 600-liter tonneaux & is made in a very bold, highly oxidative style. Ripe, baked apples abound, along with ripe yellow plum, toasted hazelnut, cracked pepper & clove all seeming to erupt from the glass. There’s the trademark Jura saline undertones, musky quince, wild honey & candied lemon on the palate with chalky minerality that bounces from side to side in your mouth. @lesmatheny #lesmatheny #arbois #jurawine #jurachardonnay #cotesdujura #côtesdujura
