Wine of the Week - Macle Côtes du Jura

Jean and Laurent Macle are the 6th and 7th generation winemakers of Domaine Macle and they produce some of the top wines from the Jura. This Côtes du Jura is made sous voile or “under veil,” which is a semi-oxidative style of wine unique to this region.

Luis Guttierez, writing for the Wine Advocate, says of the 2011 vintage: "The palate is much more expressive and tasty, with deep salty flavors and a long finish. It would welcome some decanting in advance or plenty of time in the glass to open up, and of course a few months in bottle to settle down, but it's a very worthy Côtes du Jura. 91+ points."
