2019 Domaine des Cavarodes Trousseau de Messagelin
Etienne Thiebaud commenced making his own wine at Domaine des Cavarodes in the northern part of the Jura in 2007. He makes wines of amazing purity which reflect the terroir of Arbois.
He only has 4.5 hectares of vines (ranging in age from 15 to 115 years old) which he farms organically but produces many cuvées from these small holdings. The wines are made as naturally as possible with no additions whatsoever.
Another beautiful Trousseau from very old vines in the 'Messagelin' vineyard in the commune of Arbois close to the village of Montigny-les-Arsures where iron rich, red marl soils add to the complexity of the wines produced from this vineyard.
It was bottled without being fined or filtered and no sulphites were added at any stage.
