We've been slowly amassing a group of hard to find Jura wines.
This seemed like a good time to offer some of the highlights of our collection, including the first time that we've been able to offer the wines of Domaine des Cavarodes.
Hailing from just north of Arbois, Etienne Thiebaud's Domaine des Cavarodes produces some of Jura's hardest to find bottles. Thiebaud works naturally and produces wines of staggering purity often sourced from very old vineyards and includes obscure and nearly forgotten regional grapes.
Cellier Saint Benoit also produces small quantities of highly sought-after wines. Before returning to his family’s domaine in Pupillin, Benjamin Benoit worked with Charles Lachaux and Amélie Berthaut in Burgundy. In no time, he was producing some of the region's most clear and finessed wines.
There's an extensive selection of the cult wines of Jean-François Ganevat. Simply put, Ganevat's wines are incredibly impressive. They have a combination of elegance and concentration that amazes. Above all, they possess an incredible clarity.
Macle has long stood as a benchmark for the Jura. The explanation is simple: no one in the region captures elegance the way that they do. Macle possesses an extraordinary ability to take Jura's wild, earthy flavors and, with absolute clarity, weave them together into a unified tapestry that has an undeniable, mineral-driven elegance.
Finally, there's Domaine du Pelican. Guillaume d'Angerville became obsessed with the Jura after a sommelier in Paris poured him a glass of Chardonnay blind and he was very impressed, believing that it was a Burgundy. This sent him off on a five-year search to find a choice location in the Jura. He consulted with a well-known geologist to find ideal vineyards. He named it Domaine du Pélican, a reference to the pelican on the crest of the city of Arbois. Three of their single vineyard bottlings are included below, including the Trousseau from Les Berangeres that belonged to the legendary Jacques Puffeney.
As you can imagine, quantities are very limited. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
