Evidence - 2009 - Etienne Courtois

Les Cailloux du Paradis

A complex aromatic palette, with hints of walnuts and spices, this is an oxidative vin de voile wine made in the spirit of a vin jaune from the Jura. Not sweet, but rich and dry, this is an extremely high-class wine! An unbelievable cuvée, it’s a wine that’s unique in the world... signed Courtois.

When a barrel is not topped up for a long time a veil of flor develops on the surface of the wine; the flor is nourished by the wine, which in turn develops notes of walnuts and an aromatic palette of great complexity.
