François Rousset-Martin 'Terres Blanches' Chardonnay, Côtes du Jura, France 2014
Francois Rousset first caught the wine-bug growing up in Burgundy where his father was a micro-biologist for the Hospices de Beaune. After earning an oenology degree and continuing his journey in the Southern Rhone and Languedoc regions, he returned to his Jurassian roots and in 2007 officially launched his winery. The 40 year old Chardonnay vines for his 'Terres Blanche' Cuvée comes from the tiny village of Nervy-sue-Seille. Lovely complexity with exotic savory notes of almond skin with a salty finish. Will benefit from a few minutes of air.
