If I had to choose one grape that embodies the terroir of the Jura region, it would be Trousseau. Unlike Pouslard with its unmistakable visceral charm, Trousseau is less often masked by its innate characteristics. Geraud’s Trousseau vines are planted in marl-heavy soils with a limestone base which gives the finished wine a meatier nose with lifted blackberry, violet, and cool blueberry aromas. The palate is rife with more blackberries and a strong mineral component backed by sturdy, well-integrated tannins. Although I believe that this would be the Fromont’s most age-worthy red, the joy of drinking it with all of its youthful energy still intact is quite special. Tim Gagnon
