Tasting notes: "A 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Poulsard, the 2018 Cotes du Jura PP Andre Pinot Poulsard is a bit of a ply with words, as PP could be Pinot-Poulsard or also Pepe, grandfather in French. This is only the third year he made reds and the first time he has used some full clusters, because the ripe 2018 vintage allowed for the stems to be ripe. So, he used some 15% of the stems for the vinification. It's fruit-driven and straightforward, combining the rusticity of the Trousseau with the elegance of Pinot. He uses Burgundy barrels—given his background—and some of the barrels are new-ish; a Pinot Noir Cuvee 1910 showed quite a lot of oak even if the barrels were second use." - Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
About the winery: Francois Rousset-Martin comes from a long line of winemaking family as both of his great-grandfather and grandfather were vine growers in Jura. Growing up in Burgundy, Francois would often spend his time between Burgundy and Jura helping his father while making wine. After graduating from his oenology degree, he started to make wine in Southern Rhone as well as in Languedoc. He eventually returned to Jura in 2007 to take over the family vineyard and to make his own wine in the village of Nevy-sur-Seille. It's not difficult to see the influence of Burgundy winemaking as Francois believes ouille (topping up) style and single-vineyard are the key elements to show the unique terroir characteristics of each vineyard faithfully.
