…Tournelle Ploussard de Montellier ( Poulsard is sometimes called Ploussard), imported by Jenny & François. This is the current release of this wine in NYC - maybe they are released late everywhere? Overall I think the 2004 was a greater wine, but this is truly lovely, with good balance and resonance, and honest Poulsard character. Others were more excited about this wine than I was, but I also liked it very much and would happily buy it again.

Annie) Bornard comes a treatise to delicacy and finesse with the local variety of Ploussard ( Poulsard). Bornard produces his wines with fruit from the appellations of Cotes du Jura and Arbois Pupillin, looking to natural fermentation and minimal intervention to elicit the most from his well tended vineyards. There is an inherent prettiness to Bornard's wines, though a great breadth in personality of the individual cuvees.

…particularly to Gamay grown on granitic soils. It also appears to meld quite nicely with Ploussard in the Jura and, based on our lineup, to hold promise for Grenache based wines from the Mediterranean regions of France.

One of my favorite wines of the night turned out to be a varietal expression of Cinsault from the Languedoc, the Vin de Table " Pitchounet" from Domaine Mouressipe. It leaned toward the method end of the aromatic spectrum but it's a wine I'd …

Has Lyle met his match? He can't even think straight after trying this Ploussard. It will puzzle you, frustrate you, but eventually satisfy you. It must be the Domain de la Tournelle Uva Arbosiana 2007.

…la Tournelle's simplest wine, " L'Uva Arbosiana," Ploussard fermented via carbonic maceration then aged for just a few months in old casks prior to bottling, that I could most easily envision myself drinking — and immensely enjoying — day in and day out. Fun and freakin' delicious. C'est tout!

Pupillin are opening their doors to the public in celebration of both their local specialty — Ploussard ( aka, Poulsard) — and the 40th anniversary of Arbois Pupillin as an officially AOC-recognized sub-district of the Arbois.

Wishing I were there to aid in the festivities aside — and heck, even wishing I had a bottle of Pupillin Ploussard in the cellar with which to celebrate from afar — I thought I'd at least share …

…L'Uva Arbosiana" (this batch is entirely from 2008 fruit) is a completely unsulfured cuvée of Ploussard that undergoes a 30-day-long carbonic maceration. A real eye-opener for the crowd in attendance, light and bright in color, crisp, firm and snappy in texture, ever fresh and just a tad smoky on the palate. Kind of like the first stiff climb after many days of riding the flat lands. Something bracing to open up the legs, lungs and mind.

A little downhill relief -- cool breeze …

Come on out and join me for some fine Chardonnay, Ploussard and Savagnin from the Jura and Arbois. World Cup finals be damned! You can DVR the game and Le Tour, but not me and the wines.

Just some thoughts on a couple of great reds for today, enjoyed among friends with supper on a recent Sunday.

Arbois Pupillin ( Ploussard), Maison Pierre Overnoy ( Emmanuel Houillon) 2005

~$35. 12.5% alcohol. Cork. Importer: Louis/Dressner, New York, NY.

There are a good deal of differing opinions in the thread on this one at Wine Disorder (no surprise there), with some finding Houillon's '05 Poulsard spot on, others too young, and yet others oxidized …
