2011 Domaine Dugois Vin de Paille Arbois (375ml)

SKU #1282472

In 1973, Daniel Dugois bought 2 hectares of vineyard and a house equipped with wine cellars in a village called Les Arsures, where he was born. He cultivated the vineyard and sold his production primarily to Henri Maire, one of the most prominent producers in Jura at that time. In 1982, Daniel made his first harvest in his own cellars and began to sell his wines to consumers. His first ever harvest earned him his first Gold Medal for his Chardonnay at the Jura Wine Contest. Daniel and his wife Monique have continued to work on the quality of their wines and their efforts have since been recognized in many wine contests and guidebook reviews. In 2003, their son Philippe returned to the estate to lend a hand in the winemaking and in 2013 he took charge of the vineyard. This Dugois Vin de Paille is blend of Chardonnay and local grape varieties: Trousseau, Savagnin and Ploussard. Carefully selected bunches are hand-harvested and are then left to dry on crates for up to 5 months. They lose 70% of their moisture and the sugars and flavors are naturally concentrated. Once pressed, 100 kg of grapes will give only 18 liters of must. The fermentation is very slow and the wine ages in oak barrels for at least 2 years. This glorious dessert wine is naturally sweet with an intense and complex nose redolent with candied fruits, honey, prune, orange, wax and fig.

A stunning dessert wine! The orange-brown color yields wonderful aromas of brown sugar, maple, and a hint of nuttiness that is inviting for dessert wine fans who are looking for an extra nuance. It has a great mouth-coating effect balanced by an acidic backbone. The aromas come alive on the palate and are followed by a peanut butter finish. Pro-tip: drizzle it onto some vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

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.
