White Before Red - Jane Berg

Some consider the Côtes du Jura the fraternal twin of the Côte d’Or, which makes sense geographically. The Jura lies just parallel to Burgundy on the opposite side of the Saône valley and on the same latitude as Montrachet. The Seille River, a tributary of the Saône, snakes its way down from the Jura Mountains toward southern Burgundy, irrigating the vineyards that blanket the meandering valleys of the impressive Reculées, the Jura’s massive limestone cliffs. The white wines that come of age here, though long and linear like those from Burgundy, have multiple and even split personalities in the most alluring way—they can be flinty or salty, nutty or candied, and any exotic combination thereof. In the Jura, you’ll taste the most weightless reds, so delicate and thirst-quenching and more lucid than any rouge you’d find in the cellar of a prestigious Burgundian estate. The most authentic way to experience the wines, short of visiting the region itself, is to pair them with some eighteen- or twenty-four-month-old Comté. Raised in local Jurassic caves, over time this semi-firm cheese develops fine-grained, salty crystals that dissolve over your tongue like Pop Rocks. Try this with a bottle from François Rousset-Martin or Jean-François Ganevat, both of whom work organically and biodynamically, with little to no sulfur, to accentuate the Jura’s unique terroir and prove that this bucolic region is no one’s twin—it’s unlike any other place at all.
