2020 Arnaud and Malou Greiner La Cartouche Rouge

This is a very interesting wine made from four of the most common grape varieties found in the Jura, namely Pinot Noir (about 80%), Ploussard, Trousseau and Gamay (yes, Gamay has been grown here for a long time). This is a very savoury, flavoursome and very drinkable red wine with a beautiful streak of acidity which is very much in the style of Jura reds that are always easy to drink. This wine matches with a wide variety of foods ranging from charcuterie to roast chicken and just about everything else between.

Arnaud Greiner is a talented and passionate young man who has been working for other Jura producers for many years. He has also been making his own wine and has just made his second commercial release (we received a small supply of his first release in 2018). We are delighted that he has agreed to supply us with some of his minuscule production.

Arnaud and his partner Malou have a number of very small parcels of vines near the village of Liesle which add up to the grand total of a little less than one hectare.

Each of the plots sits in a forest setting far from any agricultural sprays from the farms around the area. Some have great views over the valley.

Arnaud and Malou are certified organic by Ecocert. They do not use any sulphites in the production of their lovely wines.
