2019 Fresh Impressions Blanc
Winemaker Patrice Béguet, originally from the Jura, left home for a jaunt as an IT consultant in Paris. As is the case, city life never quite stuck, and the call back to home led him and his wife Caroline Hughes back to the Jura. They purchased heritage vineyards on great terroir, and set up a small winery under their house in Mesnay. They own 4.5 hectares of vineyard in the AOC Arbois appellation at over 300metres above sea level, including one of the most coveted slopes of Arbois. Coveted in the Jura is a big deal in the natural wine game! The pair make unbelievably exciting wines, each one full of twists and turns. The fruits in this blend were hand harvested from organic or biodynamic vineyards in Alsace (50% Pinot Gris), Mont Vontoux (20% Grenache Blanc), Loire (20% Melon de B.) and Jura (10% Ploussard). Preservative-free. A stunning wine laced with floral orange blossom, herbal green ivy, zesty lemon/lime and hay. Super juicy with a nice tangy acid that fills every nook and cranny of the mouth. Just delicious.
