Arbois Pupillin Poulsard 2015

Orange red, super light, looks more like a rose or dark orange wine, cloudy.

To be honest, the notes seem like an orange wine - would have called that if blinded I think. Didn't get any red fruit character found by some CT users.

Reductive nose (olive tapenade), blood orange, quince, tea, savoury tones (tomato branch, forest floor, chicken essence).

Palate - spritzy, very natty and reductive, a touch dirty but still has fruit. Still reductive the next day, but the blood orange and tea notes were clearer. Savoury, with saline acidity and good finish. I found the tannins out of place, especially against the lightness of the wine.

Day 3 - VA has appeared, still sporting reduction interestingly, quite savoury, feels weightier.

To be frank, I don't get this wine. Maybe it needs time, but it's an odd ball of a Poulsard - nothing like Labet's or Bonard's (both of which I like). Could be bottle variation - notes seem to align with that of some users. Would love to drink this again, but with the price trend, it remains a special treat.

Nice showing for ‘11 savagnin for first 45 minutes- pretty sharp decline after. If you are sitting on one I’d recommend drinking and drinking pretty quick upon opening. Pleasant oxidative notes. — 21 days ago

Arbois Pupillin Chardonnay Ouillé 2005

Seth Morgen Long
9.5

From what I’ve gathered, 2005 was a difficult vintage chez Overnoy. That being said, this was exactly as you might expect - wondrous and complex. Waxen but austere, mineral and slight twang but everything integrated and sewn up. No need to drink now but it is wide open, considering. I’ve also been intrigued to learn about the chemistry of wines like this, and so I ran this on the Foss at the winery:
TA: 7.42g/L
VA: .69g/L
Abv: 12.12%
pH: 3.24
RS: 0g/L
Malic: 0g/L
Lactic: 3.8g/L

Arbois Pupillin Chardonnay 2012

This was a delicious pristine bottle, but on this night the Ganevat was simply the better wine. Less complex and dense in comparison, but it certainly has the guts to stand the test of time. Very primary, yellow fruits, pure, leesy. Day 2 and it's super salty, and showing more nutty tones. This really tastes like a good flat champagne! — 6 months ago
