Chevassu Chardonnay Sous Voile, delicious, complex, layered and unusual Chardonnay from the Jura. Chardonnay Sous Voile has a delicious taste of honeysuckle and cream and a richer toffee pudding note. The palate cuts through with a a lovely vein of acidity, bringing lemons and melons. There is a saltiness to this wine, not dissimilar to the Savagnin of Vin Jaune fame. But here it is softer, which comes from its time ageing under a layer of flor yeast. Chevassu Chardonnay is a fascinating wine for both those who think they know Chardonnay, but also a great shout for sherry drinkers who want a table wine with some character. It cries out for some sharp and creamy Jura cheese or maybe a Fondue.
