Just a warning. Do not open your bottle of 2008 Jacques Puffeney Arbois Pinot Noir. I thought I’d treat myself to a bottle last Friday night. Yeah, not a treat. It was not good. Thin, overly acidic (I can’t believe I’m saying that), very tart (underripe?), not much on the nose. And unfortunately, it didn’t get any better over the course of three days. Maybe a little more expressive on the nose. I’m not going to say ‘do not buy this’ because, well, do what you want. I’ll most likely get one more bottle and hold onto it for a little bit in hopes that it’ll come together or that it was perhaps an off bottle. Truthfully, it’s probably just way, way too early to be opening this in any event. Just don’t do it. Or do it and let me know how it was for you.
***[Edited to add] I just was emailing with a fellow Disorderly/Wine Geek and they mentioned that they had had the ’08 Pinot from Puff and it was solid. Looks like mine was an off bottle. Will have to try again.***
