ARBOIS TROUSSEAU 2015
A very beautiful cherry red colour with intensity. The nose, very fine, exhales aromas of small red fruits with woody and spicy notes. The palate is typical of the grape variety. It reveals notes of spices and ripe fruit, with an elegant and balanced structure.
A racy & powerful Arbois.

The 225 hectares in production took a month to harvest, The Jura enjoyed a magnificent year, with early ripening and a harvest of wonderful quality. This ripe fruit in perfect health should spell an exceptional vintage. The red wines are showing nice concentration, with lovely tannins and a forthright aromatic profile. The white wines, which usually have a good crisp tension, are very moreish. The yields were fairly variable depending on the varietal, the Savagnin having suffered in places from uneven flowering, but there is definitely potential.
Besides the world-famous Pinot Noir, the Jura has the wealth to hold two native varieties: the Trousseau and the Poulsard or Ploussard. The Trousseau is a late and demanding grape variety of Comtoise origin and requires lighter, gravelly and warm soil. Once vinified, it develops intense, peppery, spicy flavors and accents of red fruits.
