2018 Domaine de l'Aigle À Deux Têtes "Derriere la Roche" Chardonnay Côtes du Jura Blanc

SKU #1477793

Henri Le Roy is a first generation winemaker who began his original career as a Biologist in Paris. Falling in love with Burgundy he did not possess Burgundy money so he decided to look further east to the Jura where he saw similar potential but a little more affordable lands to begin his second career in wine. His first vintage was 2005, and he has continued to evolve and grow as a winemaker for the past decade plus. Henri prefers to make Ouille styled wines (topped off barrels) as opposed to the traditional oxidative or biological styled wines for his whites. For his reds he prefers the indigenous grapes Poulsard and Trousseau for the classic profiles. The Derriere la Roche is made with the Melon a Queue Rouge clone of Chardonnay. This clone is known for its red-tailed stem when it reaches maturity. This is Henri's most famous white and has graced the lists of top Parisian restaurants. It has a sublime richness that transcends vintage.

Winemaker Henri Le Roy is one of the under the radar stars of the Jura. His ouille styled whites (topped-off barrels as opposed to allowing a more traditional oxidative tone) flit into Burgundian territory with their richness, detail and minerality. This is still very Jura though with gorgeous tones of roasted apples, cardamom, tamarind and Indian spice notes. I opened the 2018 vs the 2016 recently and the quality is so consistent that it was nice to see it with just a couple of years of bottle age as the latter vintage opened more quickly. This 2018 is gorgeous stuff though, and you would pay twice the price for this quality from those more famous appellations just a 100 miles to the west.
