I had only heard a little bit about Jura wines… As it is a very small region that represents only 0.2% of France’s total wine production, it is probably normal. However, it has not always been the case. Jura used to be around ten times its current size, but a series of setbacks decreased its presence from 1850. So, let’s discover Jura wine together!
I wanted to pay Armand Heitz a visit. I really wanted it. Of course I can prove it: back on July 29 I took a 7-hour-long train ride to visit the estate. And do nothing else… I visited the lovely vineyards, tasted the wines and went right back home for another 7-hour-long train ride. Another epic wine trip in Burgundy!
You’re probably thinking I’m crazy. Well maybe I am… But I love Bourgogne and getting to visit another of its wonderful estates was worth it. Domaine Heitz-Lochardet was worth it!
