Fumey-Chatelain Arbois Chardonnay 2020 Jura

MXN $990

Grape: 100% Chardonnay

Appellation: Arbois AOC

Region: Jura, France

You’ll taste/smell: This is classic Jura goodness, racing with minerality and dancing with freshness. Maybe it’s not the Chardy you know. Or maybe, Jura fans, it is. Notes of lemon and green apples and white flowers, vibrant acid. The Marl and Limestone soils leaving their salty fingerprint here.

Good to have it with: this wines seem fitted for greek food for sure, truffle fries.

The Winery: Domaine Fumey Chatelain

Fumey Chatelain is a husband and wife team – Raphael Fumey and Adeline Chatelain, who tend about 17 hectares of vineyards in the Jura subregion of Arbois.

Thirty years ago they were solely grape-growers but after the devastating frost of 1991 left them with only a tiny crop to sell they decided to make the wine themselves, and have not looked back since.

Now based in Montigny-lès-Arsures, the recent wines are predominantly the work of their globetrotting son, Marin, who has spent time at Spinifex in the Barossa among many other vintage stints around the world.

The wines are made with minimum intervention and they are in the process of organic and biodynamic certification. As they say…”respectful of the living soil we do everything possible to obtain healthy berries. Good wines are produced with great grapes.”
