Domaine Rolet Trousseau 2015Arbois, Jura, FranceTrousseau 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 ideal for the trousseau, as proven by this wine. After destemming and a few days' maceration, it was fermented in stainless for three weeks and then aged for 15 months in foudre. The careful farming and winemaking mitigates the hot 2015 vintage and allows trousseau's charm to win out. Salted plum, blueberry, summer strawberry and wild cherry stream through the medium-bodied palate, surprisingly juicy, silken sided, and sophisticated. The finish licks licorice, lipstick, and mineral salts, and at a subtle 13 degrees, encourages another glass.Tasted: 19 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops ON 29.95 consignment - Le Sommelier Producer: Domaine Rolet Père & FilsDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
