Domaine Rolet - Arbois Trousseau - 1989 - 1500 ml
WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
“Vines located on the “Byards” hillside at Voiteur at the top of the slope and in an amphitheater facing due south. The soils marked with gray marls from the Lias are here covered with limestone scree.”
"To the eye, the dress is clear with golden reflections, witnesses of a beautiful maturity. Powerful nose combining aromas of ripe fruit and hints of honey. The generous attack followed by a nice balance on the palate. Harmony between volume and freshness"
Domaine Rolet is established as one of the Jura vineyard flagships and its wines propose the whole terroir richness through the large range of Jura grape varieties.
