Poulsard is an ancient red-skinned grape variety that is a specialty of Arbois in northern Jura, France. Known for its thin skins and pale coloring, Poulsard wines can be so light in color that they are often mistaken for rosé. Its delicate perfumes make it a lesser-known quality. Poulsard is susceptible to spring frosts, mildew, and sunburn, making it a tricky variety to grow. However, it's used to make a wide range of wines from red, rosé, white, and sparkling wine. It's commonly blended with Gamay, Pinot Noir and Trousseau.
