Variety

Trousseau

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). Trousseau is the richer and fruitier wine of the Jura family, though it still remains medium-bodied at its ripest, thanks to full southern exposure and warm soils of 'Les Trouillots.' The red wines are all vinified with natural yeasts and no added SO2, then aged in stainless steel for 6-8 months and bottled in the spring to preserve their fresh, quaffable character.
