Arbois Poulsard Fruitiere Vinicole d'Arbois 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Notting Hill [ www.nicolas.co.uk ] It is from the Jura wine region of France,a part of the Franche-Comte between Burgundy and the Swiss border in the foothills of the Alps.The Arbois AOC was created in 1936 [although wine has been made in the region since at least medieval times] for wines from around the small town of that name,and is the largest and most northerly AOC of the Jura region. My bottle is made from the poulsard grape [sometimes called plousard ] a variety native to the Jura region. It is noted for having a thin skin with little colour so it tends to produce pale-coloured wines and the thin skin makes it difficult to grow.My bottle was made by the Fruitiere Vinicole d'Arbois co-operative group based in Chateau Bethanie in Arbois.I started the bottle last night with my baked chicken breast supper and I did enjoy it. It is very pale in colour almost like a rose.There is a raspberry and cherry style fruit there but not a particularly intense fruit and the tannins are sufficent to give structure I would also say that it is fairly subtle although a little thin and watery In short,this is an easy-drinking wine but fairly unusual
