Arbois Trousseau Domaine Rolet serve at a temperature of 12°C.
This cuvée’s Trousseau comes from land perfectly exposed to the south and west, benefitting from the richness of the marl and clay soil. To make this wine, the domain harvested and sorted by hand before maturing the wine for 15-20 months in barrels. This step allows for the tannic structure to develop, offering the wine an appreciable roundness. It has an intense colour, giving off flavourful notes of little, red fruits. Its texture can be appreciated for its volume and its fresh finish, especially alongside a flavourful game dish or maybe a chocolate tart.
Created in the 1960s by M. Rolet, the eponymous domaine is the second largest in the Jura region, spanning 62 heactres. The property was passed on to his children Élyane, Pierre, Bernard and Guy who sold it in 2018 to the well-known Burgundian wine family, the Devillards (of Château de Chamirey, Domaine de la Ferté, Domaine des Perdrix and Domaine de la Garenne fame). No doubt this domaine, which already produced wonderful wines, will continue to impress in the years to come.
