Trousseau

Where and How?

This is Trousseau from 25-year-old vines planted on a south facing vineyard, on gravel soils, near the village Voiteur.

The Winemaker: Les Granges Paquenesses

Loreline Laborde of Les Granges Pâquenesses is a one-woman / one-horse (named Amazone) band, based in Tourmont, near Poligny. She cut her winemaking teeth in the Rhône Valley, but like so many others, fell in love with the Jura wine region. She tends 2.5 hectares of vines, a vegetable garden, and also keeps goats and chickens.
She tends her vineyards of Savagnin, Chardonnay, Trousseau and Poulsard organically with biodynamic methods. Her wines are made as hands-off as possible, ageing in older oak barrels and being bottled unfined and unfiltered. She picks a little earlier than average, resulting in taut, mineral, focused wines. Her Savagnin is one of LITTLEWINE’s all-time favourite expressions of the variety: see for yourself!
