Lucien Aviet Trousseau 'Rosière'

Lucien Aviet Trousseau 'Rosière'


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Trousseau

Vintage: 2018

Returning from the Algerian war in 1960 when many growers in the region opted to plant chardonnay, Lucien Aviet went against the trend by planting mainly Trousseau à La Dame (an old low-yielding strain) and some Savagnin from excellent rootstock. His hunch paid off and the Aviet domaine, now run by Lucien's son Vincent, is renowned for producing some of the the finest Trousseau in the whole Jura.

Rosière is the top Trousseau from Aviet: rich, spicy and impressively structured with dense black plum and black cherry fruit lifted by a fragrant dusting of black pepper and violets. Full for Trousseau on the palate with more dark fruit, mouth-filling texture and a thirst-quenching bitter quality on the finish.
