Producer: Philippe Bornard
I believe this is my first wine from the Jura. Trousseau is not included on the Wine Century Club's default list of grapes, so I added it and am now 23 percent complete.
An irritating wax capsule had to be carved off in small pieces to expose the cork. If you want to torture the sommelier, order this and watch the wrestling match at the table.
Sight: Unusual, cloudy, brick red or cranberry color, clear rim.
Nose: Tight, earthy, rustic, strawberry fruit is in the background, hint of burnt popcorn that blew off later.
Palate: Slightly pettilant, light body, very tart red fruit (strawberry, cranberry), long finish

I have some 2005 Noiret from Presque Isle (PA) that I believe has 10-15% CF blended into it. Noiret has a distinctive black pepper characteristic to it, not unlike Lemberger.Carl Eppig wrote:There is a winery here in New Hampshire called Labelle. Their focus is on producing blends. This fall they are coming out with one that is 50% Cab Franc and 50% Noiret. Will have to check it out and search down this thread!

I've gotten some strange almost electric notes from some of the Puzelat whites, but I wasn't entirely sure they were 'supposed' to be that way.
