Jura, France, 5:01 AM, October 3,
2011:
            A cowbell rings in the distance. You’re exhausted,
drained of vitality and morale, sore to the bone. “Get up,” your
bunkmate whispers, “before he does.”  You notice the bed
sheet rolled into a ball under his arm. He reddens. With shaking,
blistered hands, he stuffs it into the soiled clothing sack.
            A chill seizes the room as you struggle to put on
your overalls before daybreak. You wonder if they will serve a little
jam with the gruel today. God save you. Why again did you agree to
harvest grapes?
            This Thursday, we celebrate the grape harvest in France
and honor the hardworking souls who hand-pick fruit so we can rock
back and forth in a creaky rocking chair drinking up that wine! We’re
pouring 5 superb bottlings. You’ll regret it to the end of your days
if you miss this one.
 1.      Sextant  “L’ecume” Pet Nat
Pinot Noir/Aligote 2014 $30
Using a combination of white magic and alchemy, Julien Altaber has
bewitched me…AGAIN. According to “people,” Aligote doesn’t interest
them. It’s unheard of and low-yielding, especially when it comes from
old vines like Altaber’s. Using this potent native grape along with
Pinot Noir and wild yeast lends bizarre and fantastic aromas. The wine
displays the turbidity and funk of Spanish cider, while the background
shows honey and figs.  
 2.      Les Chais du Vieux Bour “Sous le
Cerisier” Côtes du Jura Chardonnay $37
This is one hell of a Chardonnay, and that’s not the sort of thing
I proclaim openly, from my balcony, bathrobe flapping in the wind. 
The grape can suffer from flab and oak-fixiation. Not in this case!
This sexy, dynamic surprise had me so delirious; I pressed a palm
against my forehead. Nutty, lush juice with balancing acidity and
boatloads of depth.  
 3.       Jean-François Quénard “Les 2
Jean” Persan  2014 $27 
It’s another native wonder! This Savoie Persan hypnotizes the
palate like an old-fashioned snake charmer (You’re the snake).
Vibrant, living, loving fruit braced by a firm backbone of minerals
and soft earth. Bring it to me on my deathbed.    
 4.      Famile Bertrand “Fleurie” Vielles
Vignes Gamay 2014 $34
Wait a minute. I take back what I said about the
Persan. This is what I want to glug on my deathbed. Stunning!
Dried roses, extra-sassy bing cherry, high-end lip balm, and dirty
knees.  Naturally, it’s produced by an old curmudgeon who doesn’t even
want to be a winemaker. Well, you know I love that.
 5.      Champ Divin “Côtes du Jura”
Pinot Noir 2014 $32
I’m merciless. Here’s another gorgeous offering, ruining you for
all future Pinots.  You’ll be spitting out “The Pinot Project” like
it’s Carlo Rossi “Sweet Red” (Hint: it is). A crunchy, nutmeggy,
electrifying wine that’s produced by Earth scientists! Huzzah.
