Jura and Chablis

2015 Stephane Tissot Clos du Curon

The Kimmeridgian era limestone and sea fossils yields Chardonnay wines of a unique high toned citric cut allied to palate staining minerality. In food friendly refreshment, hard not to love..... Also found here are the wines of the Jura, specifically those of maestro Stephane Tissot. Clay and limestone in varying proportion allow for parcellary distinct expressions of Chardonnay, as well as awesome Chardonnay based bubblies.

Price: $99.00

St├ęphane asked me what Grand cru white Burgundies I work with. I told him that I think of this wine as perhaps the best Grand cru white Burgundy that I work with, as I find its sense of implosive dry extract absolutely remarkable, as compelling of a Chardonnay wine grown on limestone as anything i've encountered. In my not so humble opinion, it clearly deserves a place on the world stage as one of the greatest white wines of the world. Just three barrels made in '16 (75 cases) made, I get 2 of the 3 cases that are coming to America. Again, in the solar '15, in spite of its power/richness, this wine is positively weightless and imploded with limestone driven minerality, its purity is absolutely crystalline. This is a long distance runner of a wine, all about its tightly coiled limestone driven power that could stand to be carafed for several hours prior to being served young. A little * awarded here.
