Les Pieds sur Terre


Red Wine


Cotes du Jura



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). Poulsard is the lightest and most ethereal red of the Jura, prized for its unique peppery quality found only in this corner of France. The red wines are all vinified with natural yeasts and with no added SO2, then aged in stainless steel for 6-8 months and bottled in the spring to preserve their fresh, quaffable character.
