Domaine de Bodine Arbois Jura Chardonnay, 2012

I don't have much experience with Jura wine, but it has been on my radar for some time. This bottle confirms that I should keep on looking and buying Jura Chardonnay. It's cool climate and a unique face of Chardonnay.

Deep gold. The acidity is apparent from the first sniff. Flinty minerals, mint and nutmeg. Exciting, enticing flavors; each sip reveals something new. Has the acidity of Chablis but a greater range of aromas and flavors. Okay when it is first pulled out of the fridge, but it gets much, much better as it airs to room temperature. I paid $20 for this wine, but it is worth that much and more.
