Benedicte & Stephane Tissot Poulsard Vieilles Vignes 2012

Benedicte & Stephane Tissot Poulsard Vieilles Vignes 2012

The nose of this intriguing biodynamically-farmed Jura red is slightly reminiscent of a good Cru Beaujolais, laden with aromas of decaying rose petals, Vietnamese cinnamon, stale pomander ball, and stemmy raspberries, all anchored by a touch of earthy-musky-funk. Benedicte & Stephane Tissot Poulsard Vieilles Vignes 2012 is light-to-medium bodied, slightly rustic and slightly spare, with bright acidity coursing through layers wild salmon berries, cranberries and and tart rose hips. 12.0% ABV Domaine Tissot 9.0 Points...

Jean Bourdy Côtes Du Jura 2009

Jean Bourdy Côtes Du Jura 2009

A blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard, all grown in a high-elevation alpine vineyard. Stylistically, the Jean Bourdy Côtes Du Jura Rouge 2009 is a nod to Burgundy, yet it also is a unique expression of terroir. Translucent cranberry in the glass, with delicate, ethereal aromas of clean, mountain air, underbrush, dried leaves and rose petals, and a piquant touch of gamey funk. One the palate, firm, ultra-fine tannins are bolstered by bright acidity, high toned red berries and a spicy floral note combined with savoury herbs on the finish. For Burgundy lovers, Jean Bourdy is a fabulous value at $26.00 per bottle. Jean Bourdy 9.1 Points...
