A pint-sized producer based out of Arbois, Emeric Foléat is a vigneron working three hectares of land organically and the resume says he was understudy and winemaker with the legendary Jacques Puffeney. Each barrel is treated individually with a balance between the use of oxidative handling (sous voile at times) and topping up (ouille). The resulting wines are particularly complex and interesting. I tried this and the 2014 at once.
Delicious, impressive chardonnay, succulent and kind of soft, yellow flesh stone fruit characters, sizzle of saline minerality an undercard in the limey tang at the core of the wine. Smells like salted nuts, the air next to the ocean, green apples, and there’s a huge volume of this impressive stink to sniff on. Delicious. All of it. A fabulous, generous, complex Jura chardonnay with freshness on its side. - WineFront.com.au
