Jura Arbois: Trousseau Domaine Jean-Louis Tissot 2018
A light, spicy red from pure Trousseau - a grape which thrives on the slopes around Arbois. Best served with smoked (Montbéliard) sausage and potatoes mashed with Mont d'Or ...on diet 'cheat' days!
The small village of Montigny-les-Arsures is the 'capital' of the Trousseau grape and home to almost half the Jura's production of this variety, which relishes the relatively sheltered vineyards and the limestone and marl soils.
