Philippe Bornard - 2018 Côtes du Jura Chardonnay Les Gaudrettes
Philippe Bornard was one of the Jura's most exciting natural winemakers (his son Tony now carries the torch). Bornard's distinctive fox labels have become emblematic of the phenomenal quality and purity for which the region is known.
This is not your classic Chardy, folks. It's unbelievably fresh, driven by crisp acidity, yet still has tonnes of complexity and a beautiful mouth-feel. Pure and elegant, long and lingering. The different varieties of marl found in the Les Gaudrettes vineyard provide a captivating minerality to this wine. So complex, we're not even going to try to describe the flavours and feels. Let's just say WOW.
