White wine. Arbois Pupillin, Jura, France. Biodynamic. 100% Chardonnay. "The one Chardonnay from limestone soils, from a south-facing vineyard is the 2016 Arbois Pupillin Côte de Caillot, which felt quite Burgundian, with a texture that reminded me of the limestone soils of Burgundy. This is not a common soil (Bajocian limestone) in Jura, as it's usually deeper down; this is from the highest vineyard in Pupillin at close to 500 meters altitude. The altitude here compensates the warmer exposure, and the wine comes through as very fresh and mineral, in a style that reminded me of producers like Roulot. 1,500 bottles were filled in September 2017. This is really very good. I had the chance to taste the 2004, and it was mind boggling, perfect for drinking now. If the 2016 ages like that, I might be underestimating this." — 93 Points, Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate #234 (Dec. 2017)
