Patrick Ligeron's Domaine des Carlines is quickly making an impression not only on Jura geeks, but also on fans of terroir in general. The domaine vineyard holdings lie partly within the Château-Chalone sub-AOC, each one delivering its own particular expression of the Chardonnay and/or Savagnin grapes.
This has length for days. All that acid and body guarantee a long life in the cellar.
Almost a sweet nose with a fine balance of notes of wet stone, ripe yellow fruit, great fatness. Rich, some sweetness, ripe fruits and great length. Could be kept up to 10 years.
