Wine #2 of Jura night. Pungent and angular at first, but within an hour it developed a beautiful and complex nose of wild blueberries, crushed stone, forest floor, and cinnamon. Loads of upfront concentration in the mouth— surprising for such a light-colored wine— tangy berry fruit with a slightly bitter edge. Full bodied, with a long minerally finish. Nice!

Oh so exciting and zing-y and interesting and I forgot I needed to post about it until I saw my unpublished blog post. Up now on ye silly scrumptious gruel. So go there if you wanna know more in the meantime this wine is exciting. I hope we keep seeing more Jura. This one is bright and a bit floral and more. As I tend to say when I’m fascinated: get in.

Not as restrained as the '14, it's showing some overripe stewiness the '14 didn't have, still a great wine, I just think it could be a little leaner.

Very good. Good red fruit and minerality and fruit finish and shows like a more complex trousseau. Easy to gulp.

Arbois Rouge 2014 DD Brightly fruity, spiced plum, raspberry but without depth. Earthy, meaty, green vegetal notes. Poulsard Trousseau & PN. Good upfront but overtly funky on the finish. Needs charcuterie. Light black pepper, Earth. Good drinking style. 85
