The Point Barre is made from the Poulsard (aka Ploussard) grape and is a light, delicate almost translucent red wine that gives off aromas of red currants, citrus and saddle leather with a touch of cinnamon.

Philippe Bornard produces a wide range of wine styles in the quaint village of Pupillin which is quite close to Arbois near the Swiss border and is one of the region’s most exciting natural winemakers. He inherited the vineyard from his father and decided to make the wine himself rather than sell his grapes to others. Phillipe makes his wine under his house which overlooks the village. The wines cover two appellations. The first is the broader Cotes du Jura and then most of the wines are from the tiny Arbois Pupillin which only applies to grapes grown in the commune of Pupillin. You will notice that in this appellation it is permitted to name the grape variety on the label – which is unusual for France. Bornard’s wines are stunning examples of the goodness that Jura has to offer. – Living Wines
