2013 Domaine Baud "Ancestral" Côtes du Jura Rouge

SKU #1289294

Tucked in between Burgundy and Switzerland lies the region of Jura. Although the climate and terroir are similar to Burgundy, the wines from this region’s remote hillside vineyards are entirely unique. Until recently, Jura was one of France’s best-kept secrets for wine and culinary delights. Now the region is trending among sommeliers and wine novices alike. The wines of the Jura should have a place on everyone’s table, not simply those in the know. Thanks to our new direct relationship with Domaine Baud, we can offer some of the great wines of the Jura at price points so low, it takes some of the risk out of being adventurous! Domaine Baud has been making wine in the Jura since 1742, perfecting their craft for nine generations. We are lucky to receive an allocation of their wine, considering around 75% of their production is consumed locally. Clementine Baud and her brother now run the estate. They have chosen to certify their farms sustainable (Terra Vitis).

Once again, another winner from Domaine Baud. Definitely give this bottle a little room to breath--when it starts to open up, it gets more and more enjoyable. The 30% Pinot Noir I believe also helps let this Trousseau-heavy blend come alive.

This Trousseau blend embodies the distinct earthiness the wines in this region can exude. This wine is aromatic, like walking through a forest, with aromas of crunchy berries, pine and fallen leaves. With one sip you can taste cherry, clove, cured meats and graphite while enjoying bright acidity, a medium body and soft tannins. Pair this unique red with roasted duck or game bird.

Another great wine to throw into the mix of my ever growing list for light, well balanced red wines. This blend of Trousseau and Pinot Noir is earthy and mineral driven as is to be expected from a Jura. However, the Pinot blended into it gives it a little more blue fruit and adds a layer of complexity to this wine that completely works. The acid stays focused driving the wine forward and it finishes with a hint of dusty structure. Super tasty and fun for those looking at other options in light bodied red wines.

- 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.
