Country: France
Region: Alsace
Grape: 100% Trousseau

This is a Trousseau from Alice’s vines in the «les Corvées» vineyard which lies close to the village of Montigny les Arsures where the terroir is considered to be perfect for the sensitive grape variety. It is here that Puffeney and Michel Gahier tend their acclaimed vineyards of the Trousseau grape.

This lighter style of red wine has aromas of fresh strawberries, cinnamon and Sichuan pepper.

The grapes were 90% destemmed for this vintage and neither pigeage (stomping the cap down) or remontage (pumping over) were performed during the 8 months of maceration. Both vintages of this wine were bottled after the long maceration.

This wine clearly displays the minerality of the Jura soil. It is light, it is long and it is totally delicious even when matched with a semi-strong cheese with truffles.
