Domaine Courbet Vin de Paille 2014 375ml
Regular price $156.00
Why yes, this is the almighty traditional dessert wine from the Jura! The grapes are slowly dehydrated in straw, or ‘paille’ in French, which gives the the wine its name. After pressing, the wine is aged in neutral Burgundian oak for three years. Make no mistake, it’s very much a dessert wine, loaded with full-powered fruit character. Stewed pineapple, chewy dried apricots, golden figs. Still, there’s a citrus-driven acidity that keeps things in check, along with a nutty backbeat that introduces a rather savoury sensibility. Bust out the Roquefort cheese and let it rip!
