Wine of the Week - Lulu Côtes du Jura 'BB1'

This week's featured wine brings a little something different to the table. Thanksgiving dinner is a meal that encourages a wide variety of wines to try, so we've chosen one of our favorite oddballs to highlight. Lulu Vigneron operates out of the Jura, a tiny region in the east of France. The BB1 is a blend of Chardonnay and local grape Savagnin that shows the uniqueness of Jura. Hints of menthol and acacia flowers on the nose, dried and stewed citrus fruits with a strong mineral impression on the palate with an iodine and saline twist, then gentle bitters on the finish. Liven up your holiday feast with this personality-filled white!

The owners of Lulu Vigneron, Ludwig Bindernagel and Nathalie Eigenschenck, purchased the Domaine in 2000. Their first vintage came shortly after in 2002. Their motto of “the wine is made in the vineyard” is exemplified by the fact Ludwig works with the vines every day. The strict attention to detail and quality helps create very complex wines with depth and layers that reflect the individuality of Jura.
