Trousseau

Trousseau is a star of red wine in the Jura, and an appellation of its own. An early-maturing and demanding varietal, it thrives in shallow marl and gravel-rich soil, as well as requiring quite a lot of sun for the region. Sensitive to rot, it needs a masterful hand in the vineyard and the winery alike in order to give its best, especially when we’re talking about organic, biodynamic and natural production. It gives quite structured wines with a ruby colour, carried by notes of red fruit (strawberry, cherry and raspberry) and earthy aromas. Its length is a defining feature.

Trousseau is also grown in Portugal under the not-so-flattering name ‘bastardo’. Here it is mainly blended to make port, though it is sometimes used in single-varietal cuvées when the quality is high enough.
