Very pure and precise with racy mouthwatering salted almond and peach pit notes along the edges while green plum Jonagold apple and white peach flavors course through the middle. A riveting almost saline edge on the finish adds length and drive. Drink now through 2016. 170 cases made. - JM

Even better is the 2009 Cotes du Jura Vignes des Voises which is bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending 21 months in French oak. It too exhibits damp earth-like notes along with honeysuckle abundant minerality and an expansive intense palate. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years. I remember when Pierre-Antoine Rovani was working for The Wine Advocate he was consistently high about the wines produced by Jean Rijckaert. He has turned out some superb wines from the Maconnais region made from Chardonnay and also has some Chardonnay planted in the Arbois as well as the relatively rare and unusual Savagnin which is sure to stump anybody in a blind tasting.
