I was very impressed by the service I received from Confit Direct when I place an order for a selection of foie gras products in November, delivery was very quick and the items were packed securely. As these delicacies were ordered specially for Christmas we have not yet opened them so cannot write a review of the products, although I am sure they will be of the highest standard. I will be more than happy to deal its Confit Direct again in the future. (Joyce from Cornwall. Dec 2016)
L'Abbaye, Montigny les Arsures, Frédéric Lornet
The wines of the Jura are unique. The traditional grape varieties (Ploussard/Poulsard, Trousseau, and Savagnin) and local methods and conditions give wines of great subtlety, In addition Pinot Noir & Chardonnay are given a special Jura flavour. The Lornets have been vignerons for several generations. Frédéric Lornet, (left) a regular prizewinner for his wines, works his vines using the method of ‘culture raisonnée’.
The wines should be approached as would Burgundies; you won't find lots of up front fruit but rather great length, sublety and complexity. Keep it in the mouth for a second or two to get the full effect.
The wine is made in the beautifully restored buildings of an abandoned Cistercian abbey, where the monks produced wine from the 13th century onwards. If you have never been to the Jura, make the effort, as it is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque regions of France. For more info Click here.
