Jura's Wiseman Returns
2007 Macle Côtes du Jura
Jura's Pinnacle of Elegance and Refinement
When we sent out our first Macle offer two and a half years ago, we said, "This is crazy, but these are great wines. Let's do an email and just see what happens..." By the time of our 06 Côtes du Jura offer last January, we had switched to saying, "I can't believe how much of this we've sold."
Jura's wines are finally beginning to get their due, and we, for one, are very happy about this.
Macle has a lot do do with it. Jean Macle, who now applies his craft with his son, Laurent, is simply tops in the Jura when it comes to rendering "sous voile" (oxidative style) wines with striking breed and harmony. These are some of the most complex, singular and food-friendly wines out there, and Macle's version represents the pinnacle of elegance and refinement.
