Arbois, Jura

Michel Gahier

La Vigne du Louis Arbois Trousseau 2014

Beautifully aromatic with floral & ripe red berry notes. Lighter bodied & finessed, but with plenty of structure which persists with chalky tannins and crisp acid. This picks up weight with air, yet remains elegant throughout. Drinking beautifully right now. — 5 days ago

D.D. Arbois Poulsard Blend 2018

A great intro to natural wine: unfiltered with a slight effervescence that diminished after a day. Another reason to nerd out over Jura! — 12 days ago

La Fauquette Arbois Chardonnay 2012

Incredible. Spends 3 years sous-voile but just a hint of oxidation/nuttiness on the finish. Pure citrus fruit with so much mouth-coating texture. Wine is still super fresh. This could go another 5-10 years easily. Wish I had another bottle. — 20 days ago

Réserve du Caveau Cuvée des Docteurs Arbois Melon à Queue Rouge

Esoteric Jura by old-timer Lucien Aviet. Made with an ancient strain of of Chardonnay with brilliant red stalks unique to the Jura known as Melon a Queue Rouge or red-tailed Melon, the Arboisien name for Chardonnay. Aged in large old foudres for 18 months (no sign of oak though) with regular ouillage (topped-up), it is fresh, clean, precise, with tension and crushed-stone minerality, hints of kelp, salt and iodine, somewhat reminiscent of Chablis. — 20 days ago

Jacques Puffeney

Cuvée Les Berangères Arbois Trousseau 2014

Sadly the last commercial vintage from the “pope of Arbois.” (I guess “Puff Daddy” was already taken). Excited to try some of the newer releases from Domaine du Pelican who acquired a lot of Puffeney’s holdings. As for this wine, it’s exceptionally beautiful and I’m just going to enjoy it rather than pick it apart. Elegant, vivacious, soulful, just really captivating and only gaining in intensity with time in the glass. — a month ago

Wow a 9.5 from Mr Perlman. No joke. Might have to try to find some.

@Pooneet Kant I’m planning on ordering a couple more tomorrow. Got this from Crush so maybe they have more. If you try it open a bit in advance as it needs more air than you’d think
