This wine is made from Poulsard grapes from fifty-year-old vines sourced from the En Curon vineyard. The wine is named after one of the sisters from the opera Cosi Fan Tutte. We particularly like the mouth-feel of this wine with its generous texture and lovely acidity backed by very subtle tannins. This is a result of 6 weeks of maceration of whole bunches.

As you would expect from a wine made from the Poulsard grape there are lovely notes of strawberries and cherries, but there is also a lingering herbal note that reminds us of marjoram or oregano. There are also some beautiful spices and pronounced minerality shining through. It is fresh, juicy and light – just what you expect a good Jura red wine to be.

Some carbon dioxide remains in this wine to enhance its freshness, but these bubbles soon disappear in the glass. It is 12.8% alcohol and was bottled in May 2017.

This wine is certified organic with Ecocert France and biodynamic with Demeter. – Living Wines
