2017 Domaine des Carlines "En Lya" Chardonnay Côtes du Jura Blanc

SKU #1489621

A new addition to the K&L inventory and to the Jura AOC as a whole, Patrick Ligeron's Domaine des Carlines is quickly making an impression not only on Jura geeks, but also on fans of terroir in general. The domaine vineyard holdings lie partly within the Château-Chalone sub-AOC, each one delivering its own particular expression of the Chardonnay and/or Savagnin grapes. The En Lya vineyard is a west-facing site on high limestone content. Despite the increased sun exposure, the fruit still retains impeccable acidity and balance thanks to the site's high elevation. The wines are aged 12-15 months in barrel with spontaneous malolactic fermentation.

Each Carline wine is a reflection of the blue marl soil and its unique top soil. "En Lya" is framed by intense citrus tones. Showing flavors of Meyer lemon and stone fruit undertones, this is nervy wine but is easily the richest of the single parcel Chardonnays. This has length for days. All that acid and body guarantee a long life in the cellar.
