According to tradition and law, Dorbon’s benchmark Macvin du Jura is produced from two-thirds unfermented must (in his case, pure Chardonnay) and one-third marc distilled from his own fruit, raised in his own cellar. Macvin, a beloved local specialty, is rarely non-delicious but is often somewhat simple; not so with Joseph’s, which spends a whopping six years aging in its own separate barrel cellar and developing startling complexity. The up-front varietally charged fruit of most Macvin melts in Dorbon’s version into an umami-tinged and broad palate of truffle and tobacco, with the alcohol integrated smoothly into the concoction’s overall complexity.
