Domaine Didier Grappe - 2010 Cotes du Jura Vin Jaune

If you're lucky enough to taste this wine, you'll find yourself in a golden chariot riding in the clouds as the setting sun slowly makes love to the horizon. Ok, a little poetic perhaps, but this wine is pretty darn celestial. As with all vin jaunes, it slumbered in barrel for more than 6 years under flor (sous voile). This potion will age much better than you.

'In vino BIO du Jura veritas' is Didier Grappe's mantra – in organic Jura wine is the truth. For Didier, good wine starts in the vines. He manages his tiny vineyard organically as an ode to nature, fostering a variety of birds, spiders, rabbits and other animals. Not much more needs to be said about this wine, other than it's very, very special.
