2021 Champ Divin Trousseau14435
WINEMAKER: Fabrice & Valérie Closset-Gaziaux
REGION: Jura, FR
A pure expression of 100% Trousseau, freshly harvested from their new plantings in Gevingey. Meticulously handpicked and destemmed, the grapes go through a natural fermentation using the local yeasts, capturing the essence of Trousseau's distinct character. Maturation takes place in barrels, allowing the wine to develop and staying true to a philosophy of minimal intervention, it's bottled without fining, filtering, and with just a touch of sulphur.
"One of the best red wines I have seen from this Domaine. Intense and flowing palate with lots of tiny wild red berries that are juicy and fill every bit of your mouth. Nice tannin profile and a beautiful acidity line through the whole wine. Simply brilliant!" - Greg Murphy, importer
True artisans of the land, Fabrice and Valérie Closset-Gaziaux acquired 5 hectares of Jura vineyards in 2008 which they immediately converted to organic and biodynamic. Their backgrounds are in Earth Sciences and were advisers to growers in the Loire valley on organic practices. They have always loved working in vineyards and when the opportunity presented itself, with a retired vigneron in Gevingey, they jumped and didn’t look back.
