Stephane Tissot Poulsard Cotes du Jura 2006

Member Review by happyrobot:

I wasn't really familar with the Poulsard varietal. Apparently it's a big ol' grape that has quite a thin skin. In the glass, the wine is very light with a slight cloudiness and a dull garnet color. On the nose, the aromas are a bit subdued and tend towards red fruit, a little spice, and some floral (violets). The palate has a pretty light body, and not a ton of stuff going on. Tannins are low, acidity is maybe a tad too high, and the flavors are like the nose - subdued red fruit with a little spice and an attractive earthiness. So, it may not sound like much, but I though this wine went great with food. We had it with a host of dishes from very spicy little snacks to meatballs and pasta. It's a very willing partner no matter what you throw at it.

A wine made with love and passion produces an emotion... You can find in a wine the personality and the character of those who made it because each gesture, each operation, each decision has its importance. The "life force" is so well constructed that if we speak of natural wines, you will not find two wines that are the same anywhere in the world, as opposed to industrial wines which are all similar. The industrialization of wine is the end of its identities, its nuances, its characteristics which are part of the magic of a bottle. The work we do at our domaine, it is, in a way, the summary of all that. Exceptional terroirs like Les Bruyères, La Mailloche, En Barberon, Curon. An attempt to achieve the maximum expression of those terroirs : our 35 hectares of vineyards are cultivated in bio-dynamic viticulture (certified by Demeter) to allow the soils to live, to have grapes untouched by chemical products, to allow natural yeast fermentations, to reduce the doses of sulfur in the cellar. This quest for aromatic diversity has lead us to produce 28 different cuvées, often terroir by terroir, with lots of innovations which take into account the incredible diversity of the vineyards of the Jura. The way we work requires lots of effort on the part of our team. 15 people work full-time all year long aided by several students in the summer and in September, by 50 harvesters. Finally, we have many new projects, from the creation of new cuvées to replanting vineyards like the Clos de la Tour de Curon, without forgetting our desire to constantly increase the quality of the wines which is our principal motivation.
