Fellow Jasnières winemakers call Pascal Janvier “l’américain.” Not for his jetsetting tendencies (no time for travel when he works practically solo at the domaine), but because of the impressive affinity Americans have for his wine. Jasnières is a tiny appellation, covering a single ridge smaller than the Corton hillside in Burgundy. Nevertheless, Pascal is a passionate spokesperson, and—more importantly—the proof is in the glass. For the Jasnières connaisseur, this 2016 might be a “sweet” surprise. Uncharacteristically rich and concentrated, it is not as dry as in most years, owing in large part to the frost that swept France. “It’s still classic Jasnières,” the former butcher-turned winemaker assures us. “Perfect with a simple platter of charcuterie.” –Anthony Lynch
