From the Critics:

  • "The non-vintage Macvin Blanc is a similarly intense, unctuously textured, full-bodied effort revealing a slight sweetness and loads of glycerin because of its white liqueur component. It is nearly impossible to describe these wines other than to say they are very intense, wonderful in a freakish way, and should be show-stoppers at any dinner party. I'm sure they will last well given the fact that the wines I tasted had spent five years in wood and were still fresh."

    "One of the most unusual wine estates in France is Chateau d'Arlay, an historic property that was acquired by the Laguiche family in 1960. They own 74 acres in the Cotes du Jura (a largely forgotten appellation) planted with everything from Pinot Noir to such indigenous grapes as Trusseau [sic], Poulsard and Savagnin as well as the more common Chardonnay. The wines are often released very late, and one of their specialties is their Vin Jaune, a sensational wine that makes a great accompaniment with foie gras. However, that cuvee is too expensive to include in this report. The non-vintage Macvin du Jura Blanc is a white wine blended with liqueur, usually made from equal parts Chardonnay and Savagnin mixed with brandy. A powerhouse with 17% alcohol, it is aged for seven years in cask before being released. These incredible curiosities are surprisingly remarkable wines that are definitely worth tasting, particularly if you have a sense of adventure and curiosity. Perhaps Chateau d'Arlay's greatest buys (and they are really spectacular) are their blends of one-third brandy combined with two-thirds grape must, the aforementioned non-vintage Macvin cuvees. The Macvin Blanc is usually composed of equal parts Chardonnay and Savagnin, and the Macvin Rouge is two-thirds Pinot Noir blended with one-third brandy. These offerings are aged four years in cask followed by one year in old oak before being released." (02/12) - 94 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
