    September 5, 2018 - Apparently my last bottle of this, I will produce a compliment: if grocery store red wine tasted like this, would be all in. Unfortunately, this is a fairly expensive poulsard from an excellent producer, convincing me of what others probably already know, Mr. Ganevat is a wizard with white wine but for whatever reason the reds are not that impressive. Nothing really tasted off other than the expected spritz, just this wine checks all the boxes of folks who don't like red Jura wines anyhow: somewhat bland and dilute, neither fruity nor earthy, just a little lost. Properly paired with taco salad.

    June 11, 2018 - Definitely had that reduced rubber scent at opening, and surprisingly (to me) still plenty of spritz. Otherwise, no particular movement, despite poulsard as a very light grape, this bottle still tasted quite fresh. Enjoyed with bouillabaisse.

    March 29, 2016 - From memory. Expected pale tawny ruby, pleasant cherry nose and refreshing palate. Tasted when opened, and seriously decanted to disperse the spritz, after all that activity I would say this wine was slightly more intense than the average poulsard, and very pleasant. Nonetheless, clearly Mr. Ganevat's whites are the stuff to seek out.

    February 22, 2015 - Pale red rose. I thank earlier reviewers for the suggestion to decant vigorously and air thoroughly, this wine was still a bit spritzy 8 hours later. While we were spared the fecal aromas, the general scent is pretty uncivilized, while palate is fresh red berries and cherry, mixed with some raw beef and leather and copious brett. Enjoyed with brisket, this wine is far from my favorite poulsard.

    Better the second day, maybe this just needs Lots of air.
