Arbois Pupillin Poulsard 2018

Might be the best red B&H I ever had. This cuvée from young vines is called en Aspis 4ème feuille. Lots of red berries and high energy. — 2 months ago

Les Tourillons Arbois Blanc Chardonnay Savagnin 2016

Another case of a white being too flabby after a slew of Rieslings. These are typically quite electric wines, but gosh does Riesling deliver a smack down on the acid levels brought to the table (especially coming from Keller). This was lemony, a little funky, sprinkled with salt, yet looked broad and tired versus the other wines. One to revisit on another occasion. — a year ago

We are identifying this wine.

Very reductive and bretty at first, but luckily aired out pretty quickly. The aromas are just intoxicating, so much going on with lemon, curry and clear signs of old barrels. Sky high acidity. Finish is long. Despite the long maceration, I don’t find it to be tannic at all, only the colour suggests there would have been some tampering with the skins. Strikingly fresh, grilled lemons, hazelnuts, a bit of hay. Should have an interesting future for the next five years, perhaps. — 5 months ago

Vieilles Vignes Arbois Pupillin Savagnin

Intense when opened, coconut, lemongrass... But day later turned to oxydised apple juice.... Drink quick and its ok. — 9 years ago

Arbois Poulsard 2018

(Overraskende meget syre og slikket. Er det maceration carbonic? Langt fra top 5 over Poulsard.)

Arbois Trousseau

Utterly alive. Still an effervescent edge which softened off with decanting, taut and thrilling. Love this stuff. From magnum. — 10 months ago
