2018 François Rousset-Martin PP André
François Rousset is producing some of the most captivating wines in the Jura right now, of that there is no doubt.
A 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Poulsard, the 2018 Côtes du Jura PP André Pinot Poulsard is a bit of a ply with words, as PP could be Pinot-Poulsard or also Pépé, 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.
