Wine Maker: Domaine de l'Octavin
Region: Jura, France
Taste note: Trousseau from forty year old vines in the parcel ‘Les Corvées’ near Montigny-les-Arsures, the spiritual home of the grape where the Jurassic marls provides perfect growing conditions.The fruit was de-stemmed and spent two months on skins in cuve, where it remained for a further seven months after being pressed off. This has a beautiful, compact structure and there is delicate warmth to the dark fruit on display. A Trousseau of real finesse.
