The Bourdy Jura Rouge is a blend of pinot noir, trousseau and poulsard. Also from high elevation alpine vineyards with various exposures. This wine, maybe even more than the blanc (if that's possible) really takes the drinker to its place of origin. Little red flowers, sweet herbs, perfume, tiny alpine strawberries, soil and stone with weightless extract and a refreshing airy quality. Not a "wine of the century" for Bourdy but a beautiful, fillagreed example that aims to please rather than impress. Delicious.
