2018 Domaine de la Pinte ‘Ami Karl’ Poulsard
Domaine de la Pinte, based in the heart of Arbois, is a juggernaut of top quality, organic Jura wines. The house style is rustic and traditional, with whites and Vin Jaune coming from the 17 hectares of mostly old vine Savagnin that is rightly considered the jewel in the estate’s crown.
Pierre’s Poulsard is the antithesis of watery, tired Jura reds. Still hauntingly light and ethereal but with colour, concentration and juiciness, this is Jura for Burgundy lovers (for half the price).
