2018 Jerome Arnoux 'Exception' Trousseau
Trousseau is one of five grape varieties allowed in the Jura wine appellations, but only covers 5% of the Jura vineyards since it requires more sun than other Jura varieties to ripe. It is often used to stiffen blends with the pale Poulsard, which is easier to cultivate. This trousseau from Jerome Arnoux is a great example of what can be achieved with this fickle grape. Medium bodied, lots of red currant/cherry vibes, fine tannin and fresh acid.
