Jasus LaLandii Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc


An exciting new producer at Vine Arts! Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned by Nelly France and Arnaud De Boel. Nelly, who is originally from Brittany, met Arnaud (who is Belgian) when they were working in New Zealand in 2009. Interested in biodynamic farming and winemaking, the couple decided to purchase vineyards in the Northern Rhône. In addition to holdings in Cornas and Saint Joseph, the couple also own some land in the Southern Rhône close to the villages of Suze-la-Rousse and Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes. Together Nelly and Arnaud craft honest and food-friendly wines meant to be shared with family and friends.

The ‘Jasus Lalandii’ comes from a small 40-year-old vineyard of bush vines planted in the Southern Rhône. Primarily made from Grenache Blanc (95%), a small percentage of Roussanne was included in the cuvée. The name of the wine comes from a species of lobster that lived off a small island between Australia and South Africa, which was very popular with French sailors. Harvested by hand, the grapes were softly pressed and naturally fermented. Gentle stirring of the lees was used to add texture and complexity. Grenache Blanc isn’t typically high in acidity, so malolactic fermentation was avoided to preserve freshness. Straw yellow in colour, this Côtes du Rhône Blanc exhibits fresh aromas of salty pear, white peach, honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate is round in texture with saline minerality. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this wine is a great pairing for lobster.
