Orange & Co  - COTES DU JURA ROUGE, Château Béthanie. Jura, France

2018 COTES DU JURA ROUGE, Château Béthanie. Jura, France

Bin: 344
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Size of bottle: 75cl
Area: Jura is in eastern France, near Switzeraland and this wine is actually from Arbois, the main wine producing commune within the Jura.
Jura is mainly famous for its sherry-like 'Vin Jaune' and the sweeter style made from dried grapes 'Vin de Paille', but it also produces really interesting and idiosyncratic whites and reds.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir, Poulsard (or Ploussard) & Trousseau in equal measures.
Producer: The Château is part of the Fruitiere Vinicole Arbois, established in 1906 and claiming to be the oldest co-operative in France. From the agent's website:
Today around 100 members (with an average holding of around three hectares) deliver approximately one-third of the of the AOC’s production to the co-operative. Only twenty members are full time vignerons, whilst another ten have either cattle or other crops. The balance are members with small-holdings or employed elsewhere full-time, working their vines at the weekend or in the evenings. The rest are retired.
Old Bridge Rating: Light but savoury and serious. Not a style for lovers of fruity, easy-drinking reds, but if you would like something to challenge and surprise you at a reasonably sensible price, then look no further.
