JURA TAKE HOME PACK
Morels, Vin Jaune + Comté.
We have a handful of Jura inspired take home packs available this weekend for those interested in having a crack at one of our favourite dishes, Coq Vin Jaune with Morel Mushrooms.
A specialty chicken dish from the Franche-Comté region in eastern France. Made with the distinctive Morel mushroom, crème fraîche and probably our favourite ever beverage, Vin Jaune. Morels have a magical way of transporting flavour. They have a unique delicate yet spongy texture that soaks up everything in their path. A ridiculously delicious match with the oxidative wines of the Jura, Vin Jaune. Aged sous voile (under a veil) in barrel for 6 years and 3 months, Vin Jaune is a mouthwatering combination of rich nutty velvet and salty freshness. It is a serious treat and an essential experience for any food and beverage lovers out there. We also love drinking Vin Jaune with a chunk of the local Comté cheese.
Additionally, there are so many delicious dishes that can be cooked with morels. A simple pasta and creamy mushroom sauce works just as well.
Our Jura pack includes /
+150g Xavier David 18month Comté cheese to get the fire burning
+150g Fresh Australian Morel mushrooms (Morchella australiana)
+100ml 2010 Domaine de la Renardiere Vin Jaune (RP $138 620ml bottle)
+100ml 2011 Domaine Rolet Vin Jaune (RP $168 620ml bottle)
+100ml Dry Fino Sherry for good measure
Available for pre-purchase for $90 per pack. Limited packs available. Additional portions of morels available on request. Ts & Cs apply. Pick up Friday 03/09 after 5pm and Saturday 04/09 after 12pm. Melbourne-wide delivery available for Saturday.
Locals, we suggest pre-ordering some chook from John at East Ivanhoe Butchers and suggest looking up some Coq Vin Jaune recipes online for inspiration. We can also include a basic recipe that we use on request. Ask us any questions, we can share tips as we love making this dish each year.
TS & CS
Due to the nature of wild foraged food, we can not be 100% sure that the Morels will be available on the dates we have specified. On the very rare chance that something happens and we do not recieve our allocation of mushrooms, we will get in contact with you asap to let you know when we expect to get them in stock. A refund can be issued at any point.
Additionally, with any wild foraged product, we recommend cleaning and cooking your product throughly to reduce the potential of any harmful bacteria that may be present from the forest. We have never had any issues eating properly cleaned and cooked Morel mushrooms.
DIDIER GRAPPE LONGEFIN OUILLE SAVAGNIN 2018
FLINT CASHEW COMPLETE
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC / 750ML
The longefin vineyard has been certified Organic since 2007, however, Didier goes a step further taking a holistic stance in his vineyards promoting diversity and sustainability. The wine is a nutty reductive Savagnin aged in topped barrels. Muted fruits bring forward honeyed toast and lees.
From the Producer: This uncompromising vigneron knows that his oxidative end result is as much a product of natural winemaking as it of natural farming. He believes good wine starts with the vine, and his hard work and dedication to his vineyards are a tribute to nature.
Didier Grappe completed his studies at the viticulture wine school in Beaune, Burgundy in 2001, and in 2007 his domain was certified organic by Ecocert. Situated in Saint-Lothain within the Côtes-du-Jura appellation, Domaine Didier Grappe farms 3.5 hectares of local varietals across three separate parcels around the village—Champs Rouge, Novelin, and Longefin.
Half a hectare is planted with the red varietals (Pinot Noir, Poulsard, and Trousseau), with three hectares dedicated to Chardonnay and Savagnin. These are rooted in grey and red marl soils, which he tends to with the utmost respect. No chemical treatments are used in the vineyard, and his winemaking involves no cultured yeasts or tannins, and is void of chaptalisation, acidification, filtering, and fining. “Grapes only”, as he would say.
His wines are much like his personality—refined and restrained, with a slight amount of tension.
RENARDIERE VIN JAUNE SAVAGNIN 2010 620ML
NUTTY SALTY KUMQUATS
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC / 620ML
This is from a 0.8HA plot of his oldest Chardonnay vines planted on Marl. Fermented and aged in 400L barrels. More showy than the Jurassique - very polished and sexy but still with the underlying Jura twang.
