Place: Jura, FRA
This wine is a Trousseau made from grapes from Alice’s vines in the Les Corvées vineyard which is close to the village of Montigny-les-Arsures (which is where Michel Gahier makes his lovely Trousseau wines).
This wine was, we think, the beginning of Alice’s move to Vin de France rather the Arbois appellation when one year its % alcohol was too low to meet the rules for the appellation. Some time later she made the decision to leave entirely.
It is a fascinating wine and one of our favourites. The flavour is fully developed and very appealing. It usually almost has the colour of a rosé but the weight and texture of a red wine making it a very versatile food wine but also perfect as an aperitif. This 2019 vintage it’s slightly closer to looking like a true red wine – just a fraction darker than some vintages. - Notes from the importer, Living Wines
