Tasting Notes

A blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Trousseau and 5% Poulsard. Trousseau and Poulsard are local varieties that are perhaps overly rustic when made as single varietals, certainly to a Volnaysien palate. Here, in harness with the noble Pinot Noir, their best attributes are allowed to shine. On the nose, there are the fragrances of pepper, smoke and brown spices sitting over crunchy red fruit. Notes of leather and sweet red fruit confit also emerge but they are beautifully balanced out by the more delicate and finer aromas of the Pinot. With air, the wine opens further, starting to relax more and revealing a very fluid, energetic style. This is highly promising, distinctive wine, bringing the lightness and finesse of a good Burgundy or Beaujolais cru but with the aromatic depth of a Côte Rôtie. Carafe and drink from release or enjoy over the next 4-5 years.

Reviews & Scores

The 2013 Arbois Trois Cépages is a red blend of the three red grapes from Jura: Pinot Noir (60%) and the rest Trousseau with just 5% Poulsard, aged for one year in used barriques. It’s very pure and clean with aromas of wild red berries; it's light colored, clean, precise with tension, with higher acidity than a Burgundy, and with more red blood orange aromas and some meaty undertones. The texture is fine, silky and very elegant. Great acidity and finesse, it drinks very well. Village at Bourgogne Rouge prices!

Ripe juicy yellow peach and hints of fresh pineapple are lifted by the refreshing tang of citrus. Beautifully interwoven into this vibrant fruit is the subtle a richness of a gentle use of oak.

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 vintage was very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail. This superb White Burgundy has a lovely perfume, and very Puligny-Montrachet in style. The really heightened fruit and exciting aromatics dance across the palate. This is a marvellous wine from a master winemaker and will be excellent to drink now after a short...
