Domaine Amelie Guillot, Arbois Trousseau, En Tartot 2020



Amelie Guillot is a Burgundian who moved her whole family to the Jura to make wine as an intern after completing his oenology studies in 1995. She bought two hectares of 40-year-old vines in Molamboz, about 10 km from Arbois – which has now risen to just over 4 hectares (including 2 hectares of old vines). The estate is farmed using biodynamic principles and grapes are picked by hand. In the winery, Amelie doesn’t use any additives and she uses minimal amounts of sulphur.

This wine is made from the Trousseau grape, which can age well and is much more deeply coloured than its fellow Jura grape – Poulsard. Trousseau buds early, can be affected by frost and is an irregular yielder. It’s also known as Bastardo, Maturana Tinto, Merenzao and Verdejo Negro.

The nose on this is fine and silky, with aromas of red fruits. The palate is balanced and light with notes of blackberries and crunchy, bright, perfumed red fruit. The finish has a peppery note.
