Wine tasting notes

Deceptively light in colour as this has great intensity of flavour. Savoury notes of spiced meat and pink peppercorn married to perfumed rose petal and wild strawberry flavours. Vibrant, delicate and lifted.

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2018) - 17.5 pts

First vintage of a varietal Poulsard was in 2015, from the vineyards they had taken over from Jacques Puffeney in Arbois and in Montigny-lès-Arsures. Vines 25–60 years old on marly and sometimes sandy limestone soils. Fully destemmed. No punchdowns. Stored in a large foudre until bottling. This variety – pale and thin-skinned with a short harvest window – is always very pale even after two weeks’ maceration but they aren’t after more colour. Very, very pale, light and almost bricky. Delicate and with a sweetness of Victoria (orange) plum. Has a lovely combination of sweetness and wildness of fruit character. Chalky and still grippy tannins, fresh, bone dry, really long. Tension, freshness and polish, with much more flavour and personality than you would expect with such low alcohol. It is delicate but not especially light bodied. The epitome of tension and energy. High-wire act. (JH)
