Domaine Des Marnes Blanches Cotes Du Jura Trousseau 2018
Natives of the Jura, both Pauline and Géraud’s families owned tiny plots used to make wine for home consumption and spending time in the vines in their childhood was enough to give them the wine bug. They met while studying winemaking in Dijon and created Domaine des Marnes Blanches when they returned to the Jura in 2006. They have farmed organically from the word go and have added small parcels of high-quality vines along the way to reach a total of 12ha today.
2018 was a warm vintage, and Pauline and Géraud made a tiny quantity of Trousseau, preserving freshness of fruit via whole bunches and a short maceration of 10-12 days. A very pale colour reflecting the gentle extraction but the wine has weight and some grip, as well as perfumed aromas of violets, blue and black fruit and a touch of undergrowth adding complexity.
