FUMEY CHATELAIN - ARBOIS PLOUSSARD 2019
This wine is playful and lightly extracted but the fruit characters show concentration and great focus. Floral and spicy on the nose, it boasts a vibrant terroir-driven earthy tone. The palate is lush with sweet ripe cherry and raspberry, some tart cranberry, faint salami and chilli spice and green herbs characters. The tannins are supple and the acidity lingers with a salt rock crunch on the finish.
ORIGIN Arbois, Jura, France
