Trousseau Singulier Amphore 2019
A Wine That
shows why the Jura is the buzzword on everybody's lips — think wild herbs, blackcurrant with a twist of rusticity; like a long walk in the countryside. In fact, this is precisely the wine to drink after that long walk; to wrap up on the sofa with after tugging off your wellies. A sofa wine.

Where and How?
This is biodynamically farmed Trousseau from five vineyards in the Jura — Rosières, Béranger, En Muzard, Corvées sous Curon and above the Bruyères parcel (east side) and Chevrette. They are planted on limestone and 'lias' clay; with many old vines (planted 1955, 1952, 1942, 2002, 1965 and 1930).
The grapes are hand harvested in small boxes, and very strictly sorted while manually being destemmed. The grapes then macerate for four weeks in a tronconic vat with some gentle punchdowns. The juice ferments naturally, and the wine is aged for four weeks in 'demi-muids' (600L barrels) for one year. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with low sulfites.
