Trousseau or as it is also known as, Bastardo, is grown in many parts of Europe, but never in big quantities. Seen mainly in Portugal, it has a white mutation called, no surprise here, Trousseau Gris.
Also seen aas rosé and as fortified wines, I decided to try a Trousseau from the French region of Jura - a land that is sandwiched between Burgundy and Switzerland, and that I think is all too often overlooked.
2005 Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot Arbois Trousseau Singulier
Very pretty on the nose, bright cherry and plum skin coming off the nose with some strawberry cream filled chocolate aromas. Wonderfully soft, then a bit of tannin coming off with very restrained, older fruit. Quite savoury with some really attractive plum and cherry stone. Very soft and then some harder, woodier elements on the finish that has a real appeal. A delicious wine 89pts
