    35 year old vines planted in a loose, gravelly soil on a southeast facing slope.  Trousseau demands very dry conditions to give its best as with this vintage in which there was no necessity to chaptalise.  Classic pale colour similar to pinot noir, a touch more weight and depth of fruit than poulsard, with mulberries, raspberries, hint of spice and mineral cut. According to Jacques, you need to exercise a little patience -  as the wine ages it picks up weight and length on the palate and is at its very best at five to six years old. For drinking now to 2022.

    100% Savagnin (14% alc.)

    Log in to view prices (62cl POA)

    Vin Jaune is the Jura region’s real speciality, from late-harvested savagnin – pressed and then aged under a yeast veil in older oak for six years, then assembled and aged in foudre for a further year. It is bottled (naturally, without filtration) in a distinctive ‘clavelin’ with a long neck and hunched shoulders – which holds 62cl – the amount of one litre of wine that is said to remain after six years of evaporation. Superb with rich, creamy dishes, it has a flavour not dissimilar to an aged amontillado sherry, with walnut and truffley tones. For drinking now to 2100.
