Valentin Morel Poulsard 'Bois d'Arnaux'


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Poulsard

Vintage: 2022

Valentin Morel originally trained in international law before being bitten by the wine bug and moving to the Alsace to learn winemaking under the influence of Pierre Frick among others. He returned to Jura in 2014 to take over the family vineyard and now cultivates 6 hectares of 40-45 year old vines. 

Bois d'Arnaux is a younger plot planted by Valentin, with massale selection cuttings from Philippe Bornard for the Poulsard, and Savagnin from Julien Labet. Spicy cherries with hints of undergrowth and wild herbs on the nose. Juicy and invigorating on the palate with typically light Poulsard tannins, fine cranberry acidity a lovely crystaline red fruit.
