Chateau D’Arlay Vin de Liqueur Macvin, Rouge
(Available in 375mL)
One of the most unusual wine estates in France is Chateau d’Arlay, an historic property that was acquired by the Laguiche family in 1960. They own 74 acres in the Cotes du Jura (a largely forgotten appellation) planted with everything from Pinot Noir to such indigenous grapes as Trusseau [sic], Poulsard and Savagnin as well as the more common Chardonnay. The wines are often released very late, and one of their specialties is their Vin Jaune, a sensational wine that makes a great accompaniment with foie gras. However, that cuvee is too expensive to include in this report. Two-thirds Pinot Noir blended with one-third brandy. Aged four years in cask followed by one year in old oak before being released.
