The Wine

This 100% Poulsard old vines, is a light bodied wine, showing a real sensitivity. Strong aromas of crushed strawberries on the nose, spices and earthy notes. It's delicate and charming at the same time. The palate is fresh, with crunchy red fruits and an interesting concentration of tannins from the old vines.

About the Wine Maker

I would have thought 1942 would’ve been an interesting time to start a winemaking venture in Jura…but for Monsieur Desiré Rolet the timing was perfect! The vinous journey he started has morphed into an an institution. In 1958 his four children joined the Domaine, subsequently expanding their holdings through the purchase of old vineyards across Arbois and Cotes du Jura. Rolet grow Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir.

The Domaine follows an organic path and uses ploughing extensively. Soils are quite varied and complex. The Domaine matches plantings to soils types - here the Trousseau is from the plot "en Levrin" that’s located north of Montigny-les-Arsures. Here the vines grow in the gray marl soils of the Lias (marine limestones, shales, marls and clays). In 2018 Cedric Ducote took over the reins, and has since doubled down on their organic pursuits.

This is a great source of wine that faithfully represents the terroir and ethos of the Jura!
