100 % Ploussard sur marnes grise
Decanted 2 hours
Glass: Zalto Burgundy
It’s been about three weeks since I tasted this wine, so forgive me if I can’t give you all the details, as my TN is all from memory.
It’s still new territory for me to taste such a wine and I don’t have a lot of reference points when it comes to the wines from Jura – in fact only one. It’s a very fragile wine, ballerina light and filled with interesting flavors. However it’s a little more reserved than the "Ploussard de Monteiller" from Domaine de la Tournelle - simply broader defined in complexity. The red fruit is not so cheerful and easy presented, but pitched deeper and with companionship of rubber and sweet liquorice scents. It’s also a very soil dominated wine, where the minerals is a thin layer of dust giving a silky clean and authentic feeling on both nose and palate. On the palate it continues on the same path and it’s delightful fragile character is adding to the drinking pleasure.
