Barrique Blanc, Domaine de la Jasse 2019
For previous buyers only
You'll have taken delivery, and possibly even broached, your order of La Jasse from Bruno le Breton which we offered pre-bottling at the start of the year.
We have shipped our full allowance of these, we won't be getting any more until the next vintage offer in 2022. We have taken around 100 cases more stock for second orders, which compares with well over 1,000 cases sold pre-bottling. So if around 1 in 10 of you wants to secure another case or two then we should be able to oblige. First-come, first-served and don't worry if you have plenty already, I am sure we will soon sell out.
The offer price to previous purchasers at £11 a bottle (vs £13.95 standard online price), £132 a case for either the Vieilles Vignes Rouge 2018 or the Barrique Blanc 2019. Limited to two cases per customer, at least for now. You already know about the wines, having purchased already, but here's a reminder of how they taste.
How does the wine taste?
Spring blossom on the nose, with orchard fruit in abundance, leading to a ripe, luscious palate. The oak is at first restrained, but gradually flavours of clove, roasted hazelnut and buttered toast emerge. For a wine made in France's deep south, Bruno's understanding of the estate's terroir, and winemaking skill has yielded a chardonnay of real class and elegance.
About the producer
Domaine de la Jasse is situated some 15 kilometres from Montpellier in the heart of the Languedoc, the most dynamic wine area of Mediterranean France. Its name comes from the shelter and shade, known in the local dialect as jasse, provided by the Domaines iconic Plane tree. This tree, which is over a century old, has provided the inspiration for the La Jasse trademark and logo.
Today La Jasse, one of the leading estates in the region, is recognised for its innovation and advanced techniques. The area is well known for attracting highly talented winemakers such as Bruno Le Breton, who has won numerous top awards with his La Jasse wines.
