Type

White Wine

Appellation

Cotes du Jura

Variety

Chardonnay

The 'Trouillots' vineyard was planted by Valentin's father in the early 1980s. The terroir is a blend of red and gray marl with limestone bedrock and faces due south with a dominant view over the tiled roofs of Poligny. 'Les Trouillots' is the heart of the domaine. Valentin typically makes five different wines from this terroir each year (one separate cuvée for each of the five grape varieties cultivated here). Naturally made and aged in used barrels, this Chardonnay is a richly textured and a classic expression of Jurassic vin nature.
