- 2004 Jean Rijckaert Savagnin Côtes du Jura Les Sarres - France, Jura, Côtes du Jura (7/2/2008)
Terrific Savagnin. Medium straw core with transparent rim. Interesting nose that started with endives and walnut to evolve to hazelnut and a light mix of caramel and vanilla. Med- body, high acidity, it needs quite some time to really opens up. Lemony acidity and a hint of oxidation. Not a lot of fruit (some apricot maybe) in this wine but interesting and complex flavors.
Pair it with the right food otherwise you'll miss a lot about this wine. (90 pts.)
