Wine Region: Jura- France
Grape: 100% Trousseau
Tasting notes: This Trousseau offers scents of 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 with some age.
Expert Rating: David Lawrason 93/100
"Trousseau is an obscure, local variely in the sub-Alpine Jura region of eastern France not far from the Swiss border. This is light to mid-weight, taut and firm red with lifted, sophisticated and pretty aromas of redcurrant/strawberry, pine forest with smoke in the distance and gentle spice. It is light and slightly tart, yet smooth and warm at the same time. Love the focus, harmony and excellent length, with a peppery, piney finish.”
