Trousseau 'Cuvée Grevillière' Domaine Daniel Dugois, Arbois Trousseau 2017
Domaine Daniel Dugois, Arbois.
The domaine was founded by Daniel in 1973 and is situated at the heart of the 'golden triangle' of the Jura - between Arbois, Salins-les-Bains and Poligny - in the village of Arsures, 5km from Arbois itself. There are 9 hectares of vines in total - all tended according to the semi-organic method of 'lutte raisonée' - and the soil is composed mainly of clay, marl and gravel - perfectly suited to the cultivation of the Trousseau grape of which Daniel is a specialist. Today, Daniel is assisted by his son, Philippe, who produced his first vintage in 2003.
A deep garnet in colour with an expressive bouquet of Morello cherry, spices and blackberry. The palate is delicate with beautifully balanced tannins leading to a lengthy finish with a hint of pine sapin.
