Staff Pick Notes

Ploussard & I have a delicious, lust-filled relationship. I will also say the same about the Jura as a whole. The region, the grape - they are the apple of my eye, the loves of my wine life. The only down fall is the lofty price tag that waft behind as Jura & Ploussard float by like the deities they are. The Arbois-Pupillin Ploussard by Overnoy-Crinquand is romantic, waxy poetic. The fruit is raw: pomegranate, red delicious apples, raspberry, all dusted in a crunchy-white minerality. On the first night I pared this with a skirt steak then scallops the next. Each experience was saliva drenched, my mouth is watering just thinking back. I also had a glass last night while shelling peanuts and talking with my mom. Any way you turn it... this Ploussard is the shit!
