Chardonnay Corvees Sous Curon Domaine de la Tournelle biodynamic wine, Jura wine made from 100% Chardonnay, Barrel fermented, little or no sulphur, full bodied and with a taste of liquid gold! Corvees sous Couron’s complex nose reveals itself through white flowers, honey aromas and a hint of grilled almonds. The mouth is thick and round with a great richness of texture and depth of flavour. The finish is long and opulent. Of the two Chardonnays from the domaine, Corvees is the fuller being on limestone, gravel and clay soils and vinified and matured for up to 2 years in barrels. The 2011 vintage (very little left) is outstanding now in its complexity, fullness and general all round gorgeousness. Jura wine has like great white Burgundy the capacity to age and develop its depth and body whilst maintaining the acidity and minerals which keep it dancing on the tongue.

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.
