The Rolet Family, farms and bottles their own wines, they farm Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard and Trousseau and Pinot Noir. Jura is a region next to Burgundy, in the start of 'the alps'. That region has been recently under the spot light, as the wines were unknown from the rest of the world. They are highly appreciated now, especially for the history of that region in wine, but also due to their Jurassic limestone soils, and unknown grape varieties, we are getting high demand for those wines.
This 100% Trousseau is a light bodied red wine showing a real elegance and complexity. Strong aromas of strawberries, raspberries and black cherries on the nose, with a touch of spice and earthy characters. The palate is fresh, balanced, with still a great purity of fruits. Crunchy red fruits on the palate too and a great structure of tannins.
This elegant Trousseau is a great introduction to a wine from that region as it's similar to a red Burgundy Pinot Noir. The wine is aged in big oak barrels which makes this wine complex retaining an amazing acidity and freshness. So if you like Pinot Noir, this is definitely worth trying. One of our favorites,
