Francois Rousset-Martin Cotes du Jura 'Cuvee du Professeur Sous-Roche', France 2018

Regular price $ 63.45

One of Rousset-Martin’s flagship cuvées, this Savagnin hails from François’s very own vines in the marl soils of the storied Château-Chalon appellation and was patiently matured in Burgundian barrels. A transformative process must have been at work here, with the dynamic freshness of the ouillé, or topped-up style, yet it still displays hints of caramelization and golden savoriness. It’s racy but rich, umami-driven, and creamy, and could be a compelling marriage with the notoriously difficult-to-pair artichoke, especially with a ramekin of butter alongside. Transcendent!
