Cellier Saint Benoit Chardonnay 'La Marcette,' Jura, France 2021

Benjamin Benoit is a rising star in a region where tradition runs deep. After being mentored by the likes of Amélie Berthaut, Nicolas Faure, and Charles Lachaux (that is as good as references get in Burgundy these days,) Benjamin had to begin his solo career earlier than planned. His father passed unexpectedly in 2019, leaving Benjamin with his family vineyards and the year's harvest to finish. His first vintage was beautiful and with the next couple of vintages hitting the market, it is no secret that Benjamin is pure talent and it won't take long before everyone catches word of it.
