2007 Philippe Bornard Savagnin "Les Chassagnes" Côtes du Jura

SKU #1113210 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Bornard 2007 Cotes du Jura Les Chassagnes Savagnin Ouille--topped-off for four years in foudre--finished with 14% alcohol and has the glycerin and breadth to prove it, though thankfully no heat or roughness on that account. In fact, this boasts wonderfully clear apple, white peach, orange and lemon that permit nuances of salt and stone, pepper and spice to show through to delightfully stimulating effect. Subtle nuttiness adds depth to the long finish. I suspect that in an ideal cellar (where sulfur-free wines belong) this could be worth following for the better part of a decade, and it will certainly prove versatile, and from my experience it certainly counts as especially impressive for its vintage.

I could drink bottles of this wine from the Jura. It is dark yellow in color, with notes of mirin, tamari, Mirabelle plum, salt, apple and marmalade that carry over to the palate. It's slightly nutty on the finish, with good acidity all the way through, wrapping up with a touch of salty apple.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
