Region: Matheny - Jura, FRA
Emeric Foleat of Les Matheny worked under the famous Jacques Puffeney for eight years. We stumbled across him by accident after staying at his girlfriend’s Airbnb. At first we had been courteous accepting an invitation to taste his wines, but that quickly turned into me cancelling another appointment just to see Emeric’s, as I dug a little deeper. The Jazz of Jura cannot be learnt or replicated by just anyone, however it is evident here.
I left my note pad at home for this visit and continued to write them on a miscellaneous piece of paper. Said piece of paper could be anywhere….. Which is a pity as I truly enjoyed writing about these utterly delicious wines! Delicious, even more so than last year and possibly a little less wild! A touch of Sulphur used in this vintage compared to last year which had nil. – Notes from the importer, Jono Hersey
