Domaine Rolet Trousseau 2014

Arbois, Jura, FranceThese trousseau vines were planted in Montigny-les-Arsures, on hillsides on the localities of Chagnon and L'Euvrin, as well as Arbois' Montesserin. The marl and clay soils are are ideal for trousseau, as proven by this wine. After destemming and a few days' maceration, this was fermented in stainless for 3 weeks, and then aged for 15 months in foudre. Pouring a light autumnal hue reflective of its age, this trousseau, from 30 year old vines, streams salted cherry, rhubarb, tobacco, dried thyme, and mineral salts along a gentle, lighter palate. Tannins are slightly sticky, hugging the maturing fruit to a lifted finish. Drinking beautifully now, and a lovely opportunity to taste trousseau with some age.Tasted: 16 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
