On a chilly day in mid-May London welcomed a group of winemakers to the first Jura wine trade tasting in the elegant surroundings of Chandos House, W1.

The tasting in full swing.
27 Jura producers showed their wines to more than 120 interested and enthusiastic tasters… including Raymond Blanc.
Wink Lorch planned and delivered a couple of seminars, managing to explain clearly the story of Jura and its fascinating wines in less than 60 minutes!
A small, very small selection of the Jura wines for tasting and talking about.
Local Jura cheese featuring Comté from The French Comté was also on show….
Tim Atkin seems pleased with his Franche-Comté goodie bag, with Jen and Céline of Mandarin Communications.
Jancis Robinson was one of the many tasters.
Several of the Jura wine producers, and a father-in-law!
And there were many animated discussions.
The party’s over – all good things come to an end.
Lovely to see Raymond Blanc who is so proud of his origins and the fabulous wines from the Jura. Well done Céline, Wink and Jen for organising this first London Jura tasting!
