Winemaker notes

Poulsard is an ancient variety from the Jura producing delicate, light bodied red wines that exhibit tart red fruit and floral characteristics. It can be made in a variety of styles from rosé, to easy-drinking "nouveau" styles, to more long-lived "pinot" styles. This poulsard, with its brief period of cold maceration and slow fermentation with indigenous yeast, is intended to be more pinot-like in its structure and nuances.  

Viticultural Notes

The poulsard is sourced from low-yielding parcels of clay-gravel soils. Vineyards are traditionally farmed without any use of chemical or synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Grapes are hand-harvested.
