This is as compellingly, gulpably delicious a Jura red wine as exists, with a freshtacular purity of light black fruited produce that is plain brilliant. In ’16, it is 20% Pinot Noir (with some whole cluster), 40% Trousseau, and 40% Poulsard, the latter two being the signature “indigenous” red varietals of the Jura. It is macerated for three months!, aged in large neutral foudre, and bottled in March, without sulfur. I have been trying to get some of this since tasting it on my first visit years ago, tasting it directly off of the bottling line with my eyes bulging out of my head as a result….this 2016 is once again bonkers tasty, with full phenolic ripeness, undeniable purity of tiny red fruits and spice, and sits at a moderate 13ish% alcohol. This is a value hound’s delight, as it will prove crazy deliciously useful for any occasion you wish, a love love love Bistro wine extraordinaire…..last year, several people came back asking for more to find the cupboard bare……go for it, squeaky passionate wheel getting its grease…. Mags anyone? :0
