Shipping calculated at checkout
Raymond Blanc observes in his introduction to this buying and travel guide, “The Jura, it has to be said, is not on every traveler’s must-visit list. This is a great shame because it is such a remarkable and stunning part of France.” Lorch, a contributor to a number of significant wine references, has spent more than a decade researching the distinctive wines of this mountainous region on the French-Swiss border, including the remarkable sherry-like vin jaune. Her meticulous explanation of soils and climate, her helpful maps, and her detailed tasting notes on the products of the region’s major vintners are supplemented with a short engaging survey of traditional foods of the region, as well as tips for traveling and staying there. A very helpful resource. We wish we had its equivalent for many other places.
