Domaine Eric Thill Chardonnay (750ml)
Eric and Bérengère Thill make wines from their small holdings in the south of the Jura some 45 kilometres south of Arbois. Here they grow the traditional Jura grape varieties including Chardonnay, Savagnin, Pinot Noir and Poulsard. They were certified organic by Ecocert in 2015. Eric was originally from Alsace and prefers to work with single grape varieties. Their vines are planted close to the forests which provide diversity. Their wines will appeal to natural wine lovers as they use a minimalist winemaking approach and eschew the use of sulphites.
From clay limestone soils in the Jura, south-west from Arbois. This Chardonnay is complex and even deserves a decant. This is an incredible deal for Chardonnay that has a true sense of place.
