Jura Master: 2010 Jacques Puffeney Trousseau
Earlier this summer I posted about my revelation with wines from the Jura region in France. These wines are almost interesting enough to make me forget about Burgundy. If only...They are, however, damn good wines that are unique enough to impress your wine geek friends; yet, they are easy drinking, fruit-driven wines that match well with many foods.
Jacques Puffeney is one of the masters of the Jura region, where the wines, both reds and whites, are edgy, lively wines that are usually unfined and unfiltered and taste like the earth from which they came. The Puffeney wines are worth searching out. Lucky for you, if you live in the ATL, you can find them at Le Caveau Wines. The Trousseau (a grape also known as Bastardo) pictured here is not cheap at $35, but it's worth it.
