Great Gifts for Geeks
What all the cool kids are drinking this year
Poulsard is one of the grand red grapes of the Jura where it produces rather pale, rose colored wines that have wonderfully bright and complex flavors. Jacques Puffeney is one of the region’s preeminent producers and while his entire portfolio is noteworthy it’s the Poulsard that is both easiest to find and most emblematic of the region’s reds. Light in color, almost delicate to look at, it start out in the glass rather compact and shy but with air explodes with lovely tart red fruits, dried herbal components and crisp, earthy minerality.
