The 2018 harvest in Jura has been described as ‘quite warm’ to ‘very warm’ though best producers have managed well and frankly, no hail and frost is pretty refreshing. Tour du Curon is arguably the best site in all of Jura for white grapes, indeed, one of the best chardonnay sites on earth.
A bold wine, distinct, powerful, strongly saline, very savoury, direct, satiny, exceptionally long and profound in its layer and layers and layers of flavour. Perfume is no slouch, all salted cashew, ripe stone fruits, apple, ginger biscuits and floral things, so lovely to sniff on and evocative of the region. There will be a conversation about alcohol (15.5%) but the wine holds it all in neatly, though you’ve got no wallflower here. So much verity to the season too. Phenomenal depth, incredibly impressive wine, moreish, compelling, complex, so packed with detail. A truly symphonic wine. - WineFront.com.au
