ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "The rare 2008 Cotes du Jura Les Sarres is slightly more expensive than the $25 cut off price, but it is made from 100% Savagnin. Read More...
Fermented naturally and bottled after 22 months in used oak, it reveals notes of exotic tropical fruits, white corn, wet gravel and sweet, damp foresty, earthy smells. An amazing white with full-bodied power and richness, it would be impossible to guess this wine in a blind tasting. Consume it over the next 5-7 years.

There are more than a few noteworthy items about this white wine: it's from Jura (an area between Burgundy and Switzerland known for intriguing wines, such as vin jaune), it's made of the Savagnin grape and it earned 94 points from Robert Parker. And its normal price is $31.99, not $24.99. So, from newbie to wine geek illuminati, this has a great chance of grabbing your attention-- and it should.

We love when wines like this fall in our glass, as it's interesting as it is delicious. The Savagnin grape is believed to be related to the Traminer grape (Gewurztraminer is in the same family) and may also be cousin to Viognier.

that family practiced before the Second World War. The base wine, which is 100% Chardonnay, is rested in tank for 9 months before being transferred without filtration into bottle for the second fermentation. After approximately eighteen months on the less this wine was finished with mid-Brut dosage of 10 g/l. The result is wine with fine perlage and pale yellow and the application of li its flavors are delicious and its texture is fine and creamy. It probably shows slightly lower acidity than a Champagne, but has quite enough to be very refreshing. It made for a perfect aperitif and held up well when nibbling stuff that one nibbles before a meal.

Known primarily as the origin of Tissot's Pinot Noir, this site also makes amazing Chardonnay--Burgundophiles will be reminded at once of Chassagne-Montrachet or Meursault, yet in Read More...
a somewhat more slimly-structured frame, plus with that unmistakable, lip-smacking Arbois tang that comes from the distinctive marriage of limestone and a touch of nutty oxidization. Make no doubt about it, this is a serious white wine--showing beautifully now at four years of age--that will even reward a little more time. As deep, complex, and site-specific as a good Premier Cru Burgundy at twice or three times the price, this wine is officially a no-brainer.Supply is limited, so get it while you can!
