Cul de Brey Domaine de la Tournelle Biodynamic wine, Trousseau, Petit Beclan, Syrah blend.An elegant red from 30 year old vines of Trousseau, Beclan and Syrah. Superb example of classic Arbois wine making, both fresh and mineral but also intense in falvours, peppery fruits, earthy undertones, fabulous with some hearty Jura foods, cheeses, sausage etc.

Evelyne and Pascal Clairet own 7 hectares in the region around Arbois, the famous wine growing capital of the Jura. They farm biodynamically and follow Maria Thun's calender in all their operations. They use no sulphur at bottling, but sometimes add 2 or 3 grams per litre earlier in the wine making. Unlike many Jura producers, they are looking to avoid oxygen in most of their wines to keep the freshness of the fruit. Their wines are a combination of golden Chardonnay fruit and Jura minerals. They are linear and precise and have the most incredible texture of any Chardonnay we have tasted. Top Burgundy wines sell for incredible prices but in terms of quality, complexity and sheer pleasure in drinking, I have not come across many Chardonnay that rival the wines of Domaine de la Tournelle. Their Savagnin is also of outstanding quality, and they make some fascinating and unique reds.
