If you are a red Burgundy lover, take a look at the neighbouring region of Jura in eastern France.
This is a great example of how more-ish Jura reds can be. A very delicate pale colour indicates a fairly light red, but it has beautifully ripe sweet fruits, surprisingly mouthfilling flavours with a lovely smooth soft texture. What I particularly liked was the streak of minerality running through this unique blend of local Jura grapes, Trousseau and Ploussard, with Pinot Noir. Our top pick at our recent Jura tasting in Edinburgh - served with Tomme de Savoie cheese.
