Le Rouge Queue - 2016 - Tony Bornard - Magnum
Very exotic aromas – pineapple, mango... Huge tension, extremely pure and precise. A palate that’s powerful and balanced. This represents another approach to Jura's Chardonnay, and an original, truly interesting one indeed.

100% Melon à Queue Rouge, an old grape variety from Jura related to the Chardonnay variety, even considered like it according to its appellation. A forgotten grape variety which had almost disappeared due to its low yield. Vines organically conducted and manually harvested. Natural vinification, long élevage in barrels of several wines. Bottled at the Estate. Unfined, unfiltered, zero added sulfites.
