This light, lively, red wine made from the Trousseau grape is as easy to drink as the Le Ginglet tag suggests. However this is not to say that it is a simple wine - there is quite a lot happening in the glass. You can discern the influence of the limestone and marl soils in this wine and there is a hint of spice on the finish making it perfect as a food wine. This is a delightful example of what can be achieved with this delicate, little-known grape variety.
"A delicious vintage for this lovely Trousseau from Philippe Bornard, the wine has an absolutely gorgeous rose petal-y texture, especially after some time in a decanter. The wine definitely shows the richness of the vintage and is soft and open with warm, generous red fruits, sweet cherries, cranberries, and herbs. This is natural wine, but clean, expressive, and pretty from start to finish. "
Wines from the Jura are one of the hottest ticket items in wine bars across the globe at present. Why has this obscure wine producing region known mainly for the aged, yellow, savoury Vin Jaune become so popular?
Regardless, we are delighted to be working with Philippe Bornard, one of the region's most exciting natural winemakers. He produces a wide range of wine styles and we order most of them to let you work out which ones you prefer.
Philippe lives in the quaint village of Pupillin which is quite close to Arbois near the Swiss border. He inherited the vineyard from his father and decided to make wine himself rather than sell his grapes to others. He makes his wine under his house which overlooks the village.
The wines cover two appellations. The first is the broader Cotes du Jura and then most of the wines are from the tiny Arbois Pupillin which only applies to grapes grown in the commune of Pupillin. You will notice that in this appellation it is permitted to name the grape variety on the label ‚– which is unusual for France. - Importer Note
