Classic pale colour similar to pinot noir, a touch more weight and depth of fruit than poulsard, with mulberries, raspberries, a hint of spice and mineral cut. According to Jacques, you need to exercise a little patience – as the wine ages it picks up weight and length on the palate and is at its very best at five to six years old. For drinking now to 2026.

After selling most of his vines in 2014 Jacques continued to make tiny quantities of trousseau up until the 2017 vintage, and we are very fortunate to have secured a small allocation from 2016 and 2017, which we will release when the wines start to open up. It comes from 35yo vines planted in loose, gravelly soil on a southeast-facing slope, perfect for the trousseau grape which demands very dry conditions to give its best.
