Point Barre Arbois Pupillin Ploussard 2015

A funky end to our France trip. Color was in between a light red and orange with some orange wine type dry-ness. Tons of funk so not for everyone but went well with different food. As the caviste described it “ca c’est plus rock n roll!” — 9 days ago

Trois Cépages Arbois Pinot Noir Blend 2017

Surprisingly light! Tart cherry, unripe plum, cranberry, little bit of pear. Very tasty. When you take it out of the fridge let it breathe for a bit and warm up a tad, but! — 5 days ago

Domaine André et Mireille Tissot

Benedicte et Stephane Tissot DD Arbois Trousseau Blend 2018

Delicious. Unexpected depth of color and fruit (apparently this sees a slightly longer maceration than some of the other wines). Juicy but still light on its feet. — 4 days ago

Domaine de la Borde

Terre du Lias Arbois Pupillin 2015

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат абрикосов, яблочного варенья, поджаренного хлеба. Умеренная тельность, довольно высокая кислотность, фенольное. Вкус соответсвует аромату, хотя яблоко здесь чувствуется больше. Узнаваемая Жюра очень хорошего уровня. — 13 days ago

Domaine Rolet

Arbois Chardonnay 2014

I am really impressed with this. Definitely a seductive and not subtle oak treatment but it’s working for me. $24 for 2014 in my neighborhood and it feels like I’m getting a $60 white burg out of it. I would say this is pretty mature and ready to rock! — 10 days ago

Amphore Savagnin

Savagnin is such a cool varietal, whether oxidative or not. This was oxidative. Almond paste, Christmas spice, fruit cake, tart mouthfeel, funk/other than fruit and high acid with aldehydic notes. Would be great with food. — 8 days ago

Le Clousot Arbois Trousseau 2017

Strong licorice on the nose and quite dark. The wine lacks depth and is less exciting than his other cuvée’s and also ~ 10$ less. Tart plums & cranberries with a hint of funk. Quite rustic with plenty of tannins. Just OK. — 21 days ago

Stéphane Tissot Vieilles Vignes Arbois Poulsard 2016

Light, pretty red. Summer berries on the nose & palate. Elegant & fresh with just a bit of grip. Served with the slightest chill. — 2 days ago

Les Grands Vergers Arbois Trousseau 2017

Cherry Nose. Maraschino cherry 🍒? Is slightly oxidized. Iron aftertaste. Sweet and rich but also quite tart. I wonder if it is really just 12.5%. Licorice, iron, blood orange 🍊, dark cherry and spice with a hint of bitter. The wine seems somewhat overdone. Tries to be a big wine but Trousseau might be the wrong grape for this exercise. Perhaps I lack the expertise as I have limited experience with old Trousseau’s and aging potential of these wines. Still available at the WineHouse in LA and Max Kogod. — 21 days ago

Domaine Marquis d'Angerville

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Chardonnay 2017

Winefanticide was committed but I was too intrigued by the Angerville Jura project to resist. This wine is defined by lime citrus notes and a silky texture. The palate is preceded by alluring sage, lemon curd and salted toffee on the nose. Don’t be afraid to age for 20 years — 13 days ago
